"Editor's Choice ... (Penny) draws not just a concentrated, consistently committed performance from the Irish players, but a warmly resonant one, with the strings sounding glorious and the woodwind and brass consistently brilliant. The recording is rich and full ..."
- Gramophone

This is the final volume in the complete series of Sir Malcolm Arnold's nine symphonies recorded by British music specialist Andrew Penny conducting the Ireland National Symphony Orchestra. The cycle was produced to commemorate the composer’s 80th birthday in October 2001 and has subsequently become BBC Music Magazine’s top recommendation.

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!
