Echoes of Land and Sea sees British pianist Maria Marchant present an engaging programme of English piano music from the past 100 years. Opening with Britten's Holiday Diary, Marchant skillfully and lyrically moves through pieces by Holst, John Ireland, Roderick Williams, and more, many of whom were inspired to draw on Britain's landscapes, seascapes, and rich folk music traditions in their compositions.

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!
