“Brabbins directs with undemonstrative mastery and the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra is suitably uninhibited in its response... That a Swedish orchestra (and record label) should have taken up [this music's] cause in so committed a fashion says much for its intrinsic qualities.”
- International Record Review

“This may be one of the most important contemporary orchestral CDs of 2013... Brabbins puts plenty of fire into the Norrköping players in presenting this full-blooded, ferociously positive music. BIS's sonics are first-rate. An absolute triumph.”
- BBC Music Magazine

“terrifically exciting... The Norrköping Symphony and Martyn Brabbins may not sound like a guaranteed-knockout team, but here, as on the earlier Pickard disc, they have the technique, the muscle and the insight to make this a recording to cherish.”
- MusicWeb International

This recording of three works by British composer John Pickard - Tenebrae, Piano Concerto, and See-Change - features the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra and conductor Martyn Brabbins at their finest. Each written ten years apart, these works serve as a broad survey of Pickard’s development as a composer. His music is expertly served by Brabbins, a respected champion of new music. This release also features Swedish pianist Fredrik Ullén in his first recording with orchestra.

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!
