The name of Walter Willson Cobbett (1847–1937) is synonymous with chamber music from the first half of the twentieth century – his contribution to the genre was immense, particularly through his many commissions and the prize for chamber music that bore his name.

The Berkeley Ensemble have sought to build on this unique legacy, introducing The New Cobbett Prize for Chamber Music. This new recording from the ensemble, brings together the three winning works from the inaugural competition with the work that won the first original competition – William Hurlstone’s "Phantasie in A minor for string quartet". Also included is "A Purcell Garland", three arrangements of a composer who inspired Cobbett by Oliver Knussen, George Benjamin and Colin Matthews.

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!
