"The sound is open and detailed, a perfect complement to the conductor’s approach. Given the high technical standards and almost 30 minutes of unfamiliar or newly recorded music, Alwyn admirers will have no problem justifying the purchase ..." - Fanfare "... attractive and colourful music ... in all its diversity and passion, appears to have an unstoppable momentum under the committed baton of David Lloyd-Jones ... this highly entertaining and gripping recording, crisply executed by the RLPO, has an energy, drive and polish ..." - Gramophone There are several descriptive scores in William Alwyn’s prolific output, including The Moor of Venice which examines the turbulent central character in Shakespeare’s Othello. The Serenade and the orchestral version of Seven Irish Tunes receive premiere recordings here, both covering a wide range of moods. Following his acclaimed recording of the Concerto Grosso No. 1, David Lloyd-Jones here completes the set, the second of which is scored for strings and concluding with the Concerto Grosso No. 3, a tribute to Sir Henry Wood.

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!
