"Best of the Year. Alsop’s performance is magnificent, exquisitely capturing the intended mood. Special kudos to the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Marin Alsop for vibrant, idiomatic interpretations of these scores ..." - Audiophile Audition "... an energetic rendition of Souvenirs and a sensitive reading of Barber’s very rarely heard Serenade for Strings … clear, well-balanced sound with excellent depth and a wide (but not irrational) dynamic range ... a worthy addition ..." - ClassicsToday.com "All of this music, not just the inspired Violin Concerto, played here with easy authority and sensitive detailing by the virtuosic American violinist Buswell, touches the listener with its melodic flow and emotional confidence ... Alsop coaxes a full range of dynamics and orchestra colours from the accomplished Scottish ensemble." - Los Angeles Times This is the third volume in a six album series of the complete orchestral works of Barber, from conductor Marin Alsop and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. A Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Solo Performance with Orchestra went to violinist James Buswell in 2003 for his brilliant solo work here. Rounding out the programme are Barber's Souvenirs (Ballet Suite) and Serenade for Strings.

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!
