Digital Booklet
"Five Stars. Walton fully conveys the music’s raw emotional power, yet also retains an appropriate sense of dancing jocularity. A musical triumph, captured in first-rate sound." - Sinfini Music "Walton's musical thought continues to deepen, with each movement taking the listener further into the tangle of complexities that the music has to offer, (his spirited performance) closely channelling Rostropovich himself." - Gramophone Released in 2013 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Benjamin Britten's birthday, this collection includes all three suites for solo cello, performed by star UK cellist Jamie Walton. The composer dedicated these suites to Rostropovich, with the passionate Third in particular inspired by Rostropovich’s rich and romantic performances of Bach’s unaccompanied suites.

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!
