"... Ward's and the NCO's dramatically compelling account, beautifully presented in a natural, spacious recording, brilliantly highlights the music's operatic qualities.”
- Gramophone

This Mozart album from the Northern Chamber Orchestra of Manchester offers three symphonies written after Mozart's first extended tour of Italy, demonstrating how he incorporated and transformed the Italian operatic overture. Recorded in Manchester in 1994, the highlight of this album is Symphony No. 18 which has been called the first of Mozart's great symphonies. Nicholas Ward directs the NCO from the violin; in this form the orchestra has won high praise for its work both in the concert hall and the recording studio.

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!
