"Four Stars ... (Davis) focuses the music’s muscularity and its astonishing changes of perspective and mood with total assurance. Capturing all the teeming ideas is as much of a challenge for sound engineers, too, but this recording, with the solo piano, played by Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, more than usually prominent, teases everything out with marvellous clarity ..."
- The Guardian

On this third volume in a globally popular Charles Ives series from Sir Andrew Davis and his Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet takes on the challenge of the solo piano part in the Symphony No. 4. The work is famous for its ubiquitous difficulties, not least the apparent impossibility of realizing many of the composer’s creative intentions in a live performance, as evidenced by the 40 pages of background discussion and practical advice to conductors that introduce the published score. The symphony is complemented here by the less-often-performed triptych Orchestral Set No. 2 and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Symphony No. 3.

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!
