"Elder’s lavish care pays particularly handsome dividends in the first movement’s haunted Lento coda and the same material’s devastatingly inevitable return at fig 13 (2'48") in the finale. The slow movement, too, is extremely fine (the numerous cantabile markings tastefully observed – and a special word of praise for the sensitive flute solo at the close)."
- Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone

"Hallé’s tradition of playing Vaughan Williams is a long and enduring one. In my view no other orchestra currently knows his works as intimately and it feels as if the music runs through its veins like lifeblood."
- Michael Cookson, MusicWeb International

Sir Mark Elder leads the legendary Hallé in his fifth instalment of Vaughan Williams symphonies. The severity of the Fourth Symphony is smoothed over by Elder's notorious calm restraint, and his musicians bring out the dynamic extremes in the piece with tight precision. The Sixth is exhilarating and menacing, with the Hallé's thunderous power on full display.

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!
