Giancarlo Guerrero leads the Nashville Symphony Orchestra on works by Pulitzer Prize and Grammy-winning American composer Jennifer Higdon, all recorded live in 2016. The album features the world premieres of Higdon's wonderfully expressive concertos for viola and oboe which highlight the unique textures and sonorities of these frequently overlooked solo instruments, played here by Roberto Díaz and James Button respectively. All Things Majestic is a four-movement suite vividly capturing the breathtaking beauty of the American landscape.

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!
