Richard Watkins, one of the most sought-after horn players of his generation, is joined on this recording by his group the Nash Ensemble and a stellar line-up of chamber musicians, including brothers Paul and Huw Watkins for an unusual combination of horn, cello and piano. The title work on this album is the solo horn piece Sea Eagle by Peter Maxwell Davies, initially considered by many to be impossible to play but now regarded as an essential part of the horn repertoire and even a set piece for the prestigious Munich Horn Competition. Tenor Mark Padmore presents the unmistakable soundworld of Gerald Barry; his setting of Lewis Carroll’s famous poem Jabberwocky, first sung in French and then repeated more forcefully in German, features some delightfully unconventional horn writing.

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!
