"Outstandingly exciting performances and terrific recorded sound ..."
- ClasicsToday.com

"They are attractive pieces, with little pretension and the arrangements are delightful. This music sounds fun ... there’s a bit of the circus to them ... they are light and pleasant to listen to. This disc will most likely appeal to those with a special affinity for wind ensembles and bands."
- MusicWeb International

In his landmark Symphony No 3, subtitled Circus Maximus, celebrated American composer John Corigliano both embodies and comments on the “massive and glamorous barbarity” of our present time, which he sees paralleling the decadence of Ancient Rome. Scored for a large concert band encircling the audience, it is a musical kaleidoscope of contemporary culture. In contrast, Gazebo Dances, which completes the programme, was inspired by the pavilions often seen on village greens in towns throughout the countryside, where concerts are given on summer evenings.

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!
