"Five Stars ... the performances are superb ... (Wilson) shows an instinctive flair for Copland’s syncopated and changing rhythms and brings out all the music’s touches of broad humour and intimate poetry ..." - BBC Music Magazine "Wilson is in his element here, coaxing razzmatazzy playing from the BBC Philharmonic ... there is tenderness, too, even a touch of Leonard Bernsteinesque wallowing in the unforgettable folksy melodies of Appalachian Spring ..." - The Sunday Times Conductor John Wilson and the the BBC Philharmonic kick off a series devoted to Copland's orchestral works with this programme highlighting some of the composer's most famous ballets.

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!
