"... very well played and in excellent sound ... Herrmann fans will be delighted to have an extended chunk of his music from film noir Hangover Square ..." - ClassicsToday.com "... very generously timed and magnificently performed and recorded ... a red letter event for the Herrmann literature ... a compelling purchase for Herrmann fans and even for neophytes ... recorded with aching clarity ... Chandos once again notch up a lavish production in every single aspect." - MusicWeb International Brilliant as both a conductor and composer, Academy Award winner and multiple nominee Bernard Herrmann was arguably the most innovative film composer from the 1940s to the 1970s. Especially recognized for his work with Alfred Hitchcock, Herrmann composed music for 47 feature films including cinema classics Citizen Kane, Psycho and Taxi Driver. On this recording, Rumon Gamba conducts the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, joined by guest pianist Martin Roscoe on the Concerto macabre from Hangover Square and soprano Orla Boylan on Citizen Kane.

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!
