"... his music is fully worthy of the accolade of performance ... those who admire Getty’s music will want to hear Plump Jack ..."
- MusicWeb International

"... the crowd scenes are some of the best things about Plump Jack, mounted with skill that no mere weekend composer could muster ... the story is a good one ... the music for the two Henrys, the crowd scenes, the writing for the orchestra are all worth experiencing."
- Audiophile Audition

"At long last we have a recording of Getty’s comic opera Plump Jack ... there is much to admire in Getty’s imaginative use of modal harmonies, the richness of his orchestration using surprisingly simple forces ... for those who enjoy Getty’s music, this may very well be indispensable to your collection."
- Fanfare

This album marks the world premiere recording of American composer Gordon Getty's 1987 comic opera Plump Jack, in which Getty uses his muse, Shakespeare’s beloved character, Falstaff. Ulf Schirmer conducts the Munich Radio Orchestra and the Radio Chorus, joined by an acclaimed cast of soloists, on this work which Getty considers his best score.

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!
