"... how brilliantly engineered and integrated are the score's sly sonic quirks and how beautifully the music plays to the strengths of the Chicago musicians ... (a) grand, playful, surprising, exuberantly colourful concerto for orchestra."
- Chicago Tribune

Written by Mason Bates as a farewell to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra after his five year tenure as composer-in-residence alongside Anna Clyne, Anthology of Fantastic Zoology was dedicated to conductor Riccardo Muti, who inspired the piece. Recorded live in June 2015, the work evokes a psychedelic Carnival of the Animals, according to Bates, drawing its subject matter from the strange creatures found in Jorge Luis Borges’s book of magical realism of the same title. While Bates is widely known for his use of electronica, no electronics are used here. Instead, the colourful orchestration and playful motifs give the music an "almost" electronic sound, drawing on the virtuosic abilities of the CSO’s musicians, many of whom Bates had in mind as he composed Anthology.

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!
