Paul Mann conducts the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra on world premiere recordings of works by contemporary British composer David Hackbridge Johnson. Until recently one of the best-kept secrets in music, his huge catalogue had been almost completely unknown even within the classical world. Learning the orchestra from the inside, as a player, he developed a confident and powerful language inherited in part from Copland, Janáček, Sibelius, Tippett and other masters, capable of bold strokes of colour and gripping dramatic gestures, often informed by a grim sense of humour, all given purpose by a skillful control of long-term symphonic tension.

"This is some of the most exciting new orchestral music that has ever come my way. David writes with complete mastery and meticulous craftsmanship and above all packs an immense emotional punch."
- Paul Mann

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!
