“Here is Bennett the consummate professional, displaying his seemingly effortless mastery at its most elegant, with John Wilson drawing from the BBC Scottish SO a response of the highest quality... The result, captured in impressive sound, is a fabulously successful inauguration of a badly-needed revivification of a major figure...”
- Robert Matthew-Walker, ClassicalSource.com

Conductor John Wilson leads the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in the first volume of Chandos's 2017 series on the concert music of Sir Richard Rodney Bennett. In an appropriate opening to the project, this album begins with Celebration, followed by the Marimba Concerto featuring soloist Colin Currie, the Symphony No. 3, Summer Music, and Sinfonietta, pieces which display Bennett's adeptness at combining contemporary, jazz, and film-influenced elements with classical idioms.

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!
