"Elder's account of the Fifth has a wonderful easy breadth, a sense of inevitable unfolding that pays most dividends in the third-movement Romanza, where the symphony's thematic connections with Vaughan Williams' opera The Pilgrim's Progress are strongest, and the rapt resolution in the final passacaglia is achieved quite magically." - Andrew Clements , The Guardian Sir Mark Elder leads the Hallé in another instalment of English music with Vaugh William's Fifth and Eighth Symphonies. Elder expertly brings out the textures of the shimmering percussion throughout the Eighth, and the Hallé showcase their musicality and expressive skills throughout.

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!
