Digital Booklet

"... played with all the elegance one expects of this band. The recording is equally refined, the snare drum and harp wonderfully tactile and the brass well blended ..."
- MusicWeb International

"There is the scent of Aaron Copland in the air, or, more unexpectedly, Malcolm Arnold ... Getty should pat himself on the back ... the recorded sound is fit for a king."
- International Record Review

"... a winning series of orchestral miniatures, beautifully, sometimes robustly scored ... Marriner and the Academy play all this music with great character and finesse ... the pianissimo strings are often exquisitely beautiful."
- Gramophone

"Some of the movements sound perfectly tuneful and upbeat, while others have a subtle macabre edge to them as befits the stimulus for the ballet ... (the usual excellent hi-res) provided by PentaTone makes it easy for those of us not heavily into vocal music to get a taste of the instrumental compositional style of Gordon Getty."
- Audiophile Audition

Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields present these highly acclaimed world premiere recordings of orchestral works by Gordon Getty. Although most of Getty’s output is vocal music, he has also written for orchestra, chamber ensembles and solo piano and this programme showcases six orchestral pieces, including the overture from his first opera, Plump Jack.

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!
