Grammy Award nomination – Best Orchestral Performance, 2018 – David Alan Miller, conductor (National Orchestral Institute Philharmonic)

"... This disc amounts to a major and highly recommendable achievement."
- Gramophone

This is the third recording in a multi-year partnership between the National Orchestral Institute Philharmonic and Naxos to release one album of American music each year. A study in dramatic contrasts, Carl Ruggles’ ‘Sun-Treader’ is an overwhelming, granite-hued tone poem by one of New England’s most original and uncompromising composers. Steven Stucky’s luminous Pulitzer Prize-winning ‘Second Concerto for Orchestra’ is a riveting exploration of sonority and sound-painting while John Harbison’s ‘Fourth Symphony’ is a big, bold, jazz-imbued work by one of America’s most important living symphonists. These three American orchestral masterpieces comprise a program that will impress and delight in equal measure.

Grammy Award-winning conductor David Alan Miller has established a reputation as one of the leading American conductors of his generation. His work with the National Orchestral Institute Philharmonic has resulted in several critically-acclaimed recordings. “Conductor David Alan Miller’s tempos are broad, letting the music breathe and allowing the composer’s clear textures and melodic warmth to be fully revealed. The NOIP plays magnificently.” (Audiophile Audition)

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!
