"(Nixon) was, on this showing, a highly skilled practitioner in the styles established by Schumann, Brahms and Mendelssohn ... the Kodály Philharmonic handles this unfamiliar music adeptly and with a notably expressive warmth of tone and readiness for drama. Their tone is ample not thin. Nothing is shortchanged by these musicians who pour into Nixon's music the profound depth of feeling it appears to invite ... highly adept music that will please greatly rather than simply satisfy curiosity."
- MusicWeb International

Henry Cotter Nixon has all but entirely disappeared from music history, a great shame as these premiere recordings reveal him as one of the most accomplished English composers of his generation. On this acclaimed first volume in a series presenting all of Nixon's surviving orchestral works, Paul Mann leads the Kodály Philharmonic Orchestra, joined by guest volinist Ana Török on Romance.

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!
