"... (Barbera’s) part is demanding, at times florid and high-flying, always passionate." - Fanfare "Four Stars ... the Pacific Chorale and Orchestra played faultlessly and the producers of this recording captured these performances in a very realistic way. Bolcom is always interesting and these two works will please lovers of contemporary music. Prometheus is the highlight of the disc to my ear, but the entire disc is beyond reproach musically and technically." - Audiophile Audition The Pacific Symphony Orchestra and the Pacific Chorale are joined by tenor René Barbera and pianist Jeffrey Biegel on this live album dedicated to Pulitzer Prize and multiple Grammy winner William Bolcom, one of America’s leading composers with a prolific and widely performed catalogue. Written for tenor Plácido Domingo, Canciones de Lorca explores the full variety of that Spanish poet’s surrealistic humour, passion and mystery, as well as invoking the Andalusian flamenco and popular song lyric atmosphere the composer feels is latent in each poem. Bolcom's Prometheus is a metaphor for our turbulent times, starkly examining how we are chained to a rock of technological dependency but dedicated to hope and a peace derived from greater universal understanding.

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!
