"... Goss draws on a variety of sources for his eminently listenable music. Despite the eclectic nature of his influences, which range from Beethoven’s late piano music to the films of Terry Gilliam, Goss’s musical language comes across as brilliantly integrated." - International Record Review This debut concerto recording from rising star pianist Emmanuel Despax and the Orpheus Sinfonia under Thomas Carroll features the world premiere of Welsh composer Stephen Goss’s Piano Concerto, inspired by the designs of Thomas Heatherwick. The work’s premiere performance was the first classical concert in which audiences were invited to bring their tablets to watch an interactive display designed to accompany the music. Also on the programme are two similarly expressive and characterful works, Saint-Saëns’s ever-popular Piano Concerto No. 2 and Franck’s Variations symphoniques.

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!
