Digital Booklet
Edward Gregson is one of Britain’s most versatile and prolific composers, his approachable and engaging music having gained recognition worldwide. With the BBC Philharmonic, Bramwell Tovey conducts works on this 2014 release that take inspiration from an array of musical and extra-musical sources, revealing the breadth of Gregson’s musical imagination. Dream Song was commissioned to share a concert programme with Mahler’s Symphony No. 6, the essence of Mahler pervading the whole of this work which aims to create a parallel musical world to that of the symphony. The Horn Concerto, originally written in 1971 for soloist with brass band, is heard here in a 2013 orchestral arrangement performed by leading horn player Richard Watkins. Each of the concerto’s three movements displays a different facet of the French horn’s character: serious, lyrical and playful.

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!
