“this is a treasure trove of ‘forgotten’ recordings that will interest and intrigue dedicated Elgar enthusiasts.”
- MusicWeb International

This digital re-release of works by Elgar is comprised of recordings that have been expertly restored and remastered by Lani Spahr. A highlight of this album is the inclusion of the premiere release of an April 1933 recording of the Elegy, Op. 58, performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and conducted by the composer himself. Also of note is the recording of the original version of the Sonatina in G Major by Elgar’s niece, May Grafton, for whom the piece was written.

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!
