The acclaimed British composer Helen Grime makes her LSO Live debut with Woven Space, a piece inspired by the willow sculptures of artist Laura Ellen Bacon. Originally beginning life as Fanfares, a single movement that marked the start of Sir Simon Rattle's first concert as Music Director of the London Symphony Orchestra, Woven Space is part of the LSO's New Music Britain series. It was particularly inspired by Bacon's own piece of the same name, which the composer discovered entwined amongst trees in the gardens of Chatsworth House. Grime said: 'I was inspired by Laura's work in many ways, in sense of the space, but also in the techniques that she uses. She creates vast structures from just two strands of willow, all done by hand, and you'll hear in my piece that everything is created out of these separate layers and lines, which are literally woven around each other. Laura's Woven Space wraps itself around the inner trees and creates a really different space within the sculpture, which I thought was an amazing idea. So the idea of having an inner space and an outer space was really important to me when writing this piece, and in a sense you get that in terms of the whole structure as well. You get these two much more driven, brighter, faster outer movements, and the inner movement, which is the largest movement, is much more intimate. It very much should feel like you've got inside the piece, that you're surrounded by it and you're in amongst all of these things.'

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!
