"The performance standard here is remarkably high. Judicious balancing on the side of the recording team means the recorder line comes through perfectly at all times. A stimulating release." - Fanfare Anthony Burgess, author of A Clockwork Orange and many other novels, was also a busy composer, writing among other works several for recorder. This album, featuring soloists John Turner on recorders and pianist Harvey Davies, presents the first recordings of some of these compositions along with works by 15 other composers in a wide and varied set of styles, most of which are also premieres.

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!
