"Editor's Choice. The two shorter works receive powerful advocacy from Lloyd-Jones and the fine Scottish Orchestra."
- Gramophone

"Lloyd-Jones proves an ardent interpreter of the symphony, indulging its excesses as well as relishing the delicacies of its slow movement ..."

David Lloyd-Jones’s ongoing Bax symphonies cycle continue with a triumphant recording of the Fourth Symphony …"
- Fanfare

This album is part of the acclaimed Bax cycle by David Lloyd-Jones and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, a series that was named Editor's Choice in Gramophone. Bax was an unabashed Romantic, his music well out of step with the prevailing musical climate at the time of his death in 1953. His compositions, not often recorded, can now be appreciated and enjoyed for the unique voice they reveal.

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!
