"the selling point of the discs is likely to be Alice Coote’s velvety smooth singing of Sea Pictures. Her performance is very restrained, trance-like almost in the first couple of songs – other mezzos find much more emotional depth in the cycle – but its coolness does make a nice contrast with Elder’s account of the five Pomp and Circumstance Marches, in which he and the orchestra keep their swagger just within decent limits."
- Andrew Clements, The Guardian

This Sir Mark Elder led Hallé performance sees Elgar's Sea Pircutres paired with his Pomp and Circumstance Marches and the less-known Polonia, a 13-minute symphonic prelude in recognition of the Polish contribution to the allied effort in World War I. Mezzo Alice Coote is a particular highlight on Sea Pictures, bringing a warmth and depth to her interpretation that demonstrates her intellect and musicality.

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!
