Ralph Vaughan Williams is often regarded as a "pastoral" composer – modal, melodic and inspired by folksong – so at the premiere of the Fourth Symphony in 1935, its sense of elemental rage and desolation took many by surprise. Yet fellow British composer William Walton admired the work greatly, speaking of it as "the greatest symphony since Beethoven". Completed 20 years later, the Eighth Symphony is the shortest of the composer"s symphonies, and much more light-hearted and joyous in mood. At the same time, it too is full of remarkable invention, especially the composer's experiments in orchestral colour and the work's exotic combinations of percussion instruments.

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!
