"Her playing of Britten’s powerful concerto has an allure that is anything but sexy; it’s urgent and occasionally darkly sinister, a perfect reflection of the nervous year in which it was written. And Roe is more than a match for the demands of Barber’s exuberantly difficult concerto." - The Observer This solo release from Elizabeth Joy Roe and the London Symphony Orchestra under Emil Tabakov couples two of the 20th century’s greatest piano concertos by Britten and Barber. Roe has been performing both works since a student at Julliard and has extensively studied the intriguing parallels between the two composers. The programme is completed with solo piano nocturnes by each composer: Britten’s Night Piece and Barber’s Nocturne, Homage to John Field, widely considered the father of the nocturne.

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!
