Lowell Graham conducts the National Symphonic Winds on this remastered reissue of a 1988 sonic classic from Wilson Audiophile. The programme of rousing material representing themes of war and peace is led off by Liberty Fanfare by John Williams, composed for the centennial of the Statue of Liberty in 1986, one of the most spectacular celebrations in America's history. Graham, acclaimed worldwide, served as conductor and commander of the United States Air Force Tactical Air Command Band from 1995 to 2002.

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!
