Legendary performances on record for the first time! George Lloyd (1913-1998) had three symphonies and two operas produced before he was twenty-five, despite little formal education. When he was just nineteen, Lloyd wrote his First Symphony. This promising start to a career in music was literally blasted to a halt by the war. Severely shell-shocked by an explosion, he was only slowly nursed back to health over many years by his devoted wife, Nancy. In 1951 he abandoned the world of music, resuming composition only in 1973. His Late Romantic style was no longer in fashion, and the revival of interest in his sweeping symphonies has been thanks in large part to championship by the conductor of this recording, Sir Edward Downes.

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!
