"Four Stars ... musical echoes, from Vaughan Williams to Stravinsky ... and beyond, are woven into Harrison’s works, each glittering in their intensity."
- The Guardian

"... a vivid exploration of the miniature. No single movement exceeds four minutes and the shortest is just 24 seconds, yet these five magnetic works explore content and form with a dazzling intensity ... beautiful and intriguing ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

The Australian-British Sadie Harrison is no ordinary composer: she is also an archaeologist and a professional gardener. So it is hardly surprising that a fascination with historical artifacts and biological processes filters into her music. The instrumental miniatures on this recording, all world premieres, are both slow and brutal. Some of them mirror ancient worlds and natural phenomena and others take their starting point from the paintings of Brian Graham and Peter Sheppard-Skærved, expressing visual and textural ideas in sound.

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!
