The Boston Symphony Orchestra has a long tradition of debuting important musical works and James Levine deepened that affiliation with a string of high profile and successful commissions during his tenure in Boston. Recorded live during world premiere performances in early 2008, Pulitzer Prize-winning William Bolcom’s Symphony No. 8 for orchestra and chorus is expressive, passionate and progressive. The programme also features Bolcom’s Lyric Concerto, recorded in concert in September 2006 with flutist Sir James Galway, for whom the piece was composed.

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!
