"Four Stars ... vivid, vivacious ... a well thought-out and stylistically comprehensive survey ... throws an interesting, conspicuously non-French perspective on a genre that came into its own in the 20th century." - The Guardian London Winds, one of the world’s most prominent chamber ensembles, presents this programme of great 20th century works representing two generations: Hindemith, Nielsen and Janácek from one generation and Barber and Ligeti from the next. These composers brought the wind repertoire back to prominence after a quiet period of more than a century with music full of playfulness and European folk colours.

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!
