“Performances and presentation are exemplary: this music seems right up Richard Hickox's street, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales is ideally recorded in the Brangwyn Hall and Anthony Burton's notes are a sensible blend of anecdote and analysis.”
- International Record Review

“Richard Hickox and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales give powerfully committed performances, warmly and fully recorded.”
- Gramophone

“If you care about fine music of the modern British School, then you will want this disc as a matter of course, and it's worth having solely for Michael Berkeley's Oboe Concerto. Certainly both concertante works give a big boost in quality to a medium not exactly overflowing with masterpieces, and on that count alone this release qualifies as a significant musical event.”
- ClassicsToday.com

The second volume in this series to bring together works by composers Lennox Berkeley and his son Michael Berkeley, this is an engaging and refreshing collection of twentieth-century British compositions, performed with precision and warmth by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales directed by Richard Hickox, and featuring oboist Nicholas Daniels.

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!
