Digital Booklet
"A major presence in this starry company is the young composer Alex Woolf, whose Three Tempestuous Tunes strike out in many musical and dramatic directions in a matter of seconds, allowing the Shakespearean characters of his choice to address the listener with first-person immediacy." - Gramophone "... Spence has the true singer’s gift of communication, without which these works would just be pretty but dull sounds ... with the help of some superb accompanying from Malcolm Martineau, he brings them alive with joy, pain, love, despair and wit." - Sinfini Music Internationally celebrated tenor Nicky Spence and pianist Malcolm Martineau present this 2013 recital album; a musical journey of Shakespeare songs by a diverse and eclectic range of composers ranging from Purcell and Haydn through to Britten, Quilter, Tippett and John Dankworth, via Chausson and Schubert. The album showcases the versatility of Spence's voice and abilities from Romantic lieder to jazz-inspired works, all superbly accompanied by acclaimed pianist Martineau. Also included here is the world premiere recording of Three Tempestuous Tunes by young composer Alex Woolf.

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!
