"Four Stars ... Davis’s path through Job is totally lucid and his handling of the great climaxes is impressive, with the organ (recorded in Bergen Cathedral) weighing in emphatically for the appearance of Satan ... in both works, the orchestra is exemplary ..."
- The Guardian

The projected complete cycle of Vaughan Williams’s symphonies started by the late Richard Hickox has left a precious heritage in the discography of the composer. Conducting the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Andrew Davis takes on the challenge of completing the series with idiomatic interpretations of two masterpieces: the final Symphony No. 9 and the ballet Job. Sir Davis's subtle direction combined with the pure sound quality of the recording does full justice to Hickox’s great enterprise and delivers a powerful conclusion to this already acclaimed series.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
