Award-winning Elgar specialist and champion Sir Andrew Davis continues his mission to record the English composer's works with this release of four symphonic works, performed by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. Featuring renowned baritone Roderick Williams in excerpts from the Song Cycle, Op. 59 as well as several stand alone songs, the centrepiece of the album is the Falstaff “symphonic study”—one of the composer's favourites among his own works—as well as the Grania & Diarmid suite from the George Moore and W. B. Yeats play of 1901.

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!
