"Four Stars ... this enjoyable programme is a rare treat ... this is very much Claire Jones's disc. Solo harp opportunities are not plentiful, so one can hardly blame Jones for making the most of her limelight. She performs diligently and allows the instrument to gleam and twinkle sonically ..."
- Classic FM

"Five Stars ... Claire Jones captures its elusive atmosphere to perfection, playing with a beguiling lyricism and subtle range of hues and colours ... (she) proves the soul of discretion, weaving in and out of the orchestral tapestry with a sensitivity and panache that enchants the senses ... (she) plays with a warmth, charm and relaxed ease ideal for winter evening listening ... exemplary, atmospheric sound."
- BBC Music Magazine

This album showcases the extraordinary talent of Claire Jones, the official harpist to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, as she performs Glière's Harp Concerto, a favourite among harp enthusiasts. She is joined by renowned flautist William Bennet OBE, cellist Paul Watkins and the English Chamber Orchestra on this programme which also includes Mozart’s Concerto for Flute, Harp and Orchestra and Debussy’s Danses pour Harpe Chromatique.

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!
