Works by two composers working at the University of Manchester in England: one American (Kevin Malone) and one British (Richard Whalley). These new works are all based on folk music: spirituals, protest songs, work ballads. They all reflect the instability of our current world and political systems, expressing concern about climate change, gun control (and the lack of), the neglect of the oppressed and the wilful deafness of ‘leaders’ to the real needs of the planet and its people. It’s not a ‘political’ album in any sense of partisanship but a reflection on how real progress can be destroyed by the power-brokers. Kevin Malone studied with Morton Feldman among others and is a lecturer in composition at the University of Manchester. Richard Whalley is Senior Lecturer in Composition at the university having studied at first at York with Nicola LeFanu and then at Harvard with Joshua Fineberg, Ebonit Saxophone Quartet, founded in the Netherlands in 2011, is a sparkling and lively ensemble featuring musicians from Poland, the Netherlands and Spain. The group has won many prizes and is developing a reputation for exciting and brilliant performances.

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!
