Digital Booklet
"... musically valid and convincing as well as emotionally rewarding ... should be part of any self-respecting collection of 20th century English music. Hear! Hear!" - Fanfare "... every one of these examples shows his orchestral personality at its exuberant best ... most entertaining and marvellously played ... recording is of the demonstration class." - Gramophone "Arnold is arguably Britain’s greatest living composer ... (he) has a wicked sense of humour as shown in A Grand Grand Festival Overture, which features three vacuum cleaners and a floor polisher. This splendid CD includes the famous Tam o’Shanter and Peterloo overtures ..." - Classic FM Rumon Gamba, the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and the engineers involved with this 2004 Arnold recording earned critical praise worldwide, including a Gramophone review that called the sound quality "demonstration class." Alongside some of Arnold's most entertaining and popular overtures, the programme includes the world premiere of the Robert Kett Overture.

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!
