"Recording of the Month ... expertly arranged ... with every colour of the orchestra shining through ... Martin Roscoe gives a stellar performance ... the BBC Philharmonic under their Spanish conductor Juanjo Mena should be equally praised. Mena has the BBC Phil sounding more Spanish than most Spanish orchestras in this music ... this wonderful disc (also has) excellent sound."
- MusicWeb International

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!
