"Performed with commitment, Frith never less than elegant." - Gramophone "A great disc, thoroughly enjoyable and certainly well worth seeking out." - MusicWeb International Pianist Benjamin Frith is accompanied by the Northern Sinfonia under David Haslam and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra conducted by Andrew Mogrelia on a pair of concertos by Dublin-born prodigy John Field, recorded in 1996 and 2014. Frith concludes the programme with a sonata he recorded in 2013, demonstrating throughout the album how Field’s immediately attractive music influenced such luminaries as Chopin and Liszt, who both attended the premiere of the Concerto No. 7 in Paris on Christmas Day in 1832.

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!
