Youth Orchestra of the Americas directed by Jean Pascal Hamelin.
The First Movement of this wonderful performance and recording from René Laflamme’s FIDELIO
label is offered here as a superb 176.4kS/s, 24-bit download. It justifiably received two nominations in the Adisq Awards (Grammys for recordings), one for ‘Sound Engineer of the Year’ and the other for ‘Classical Orchestral Recording of the Year’. In the right system it sounds wonderful – and the music-making is exceptional too.
