This is a rare programme of organ transcriptions of major works originally composed for a symphony, a transcendental presentation of orchestral favourites played to breathtaking perfection by internationally renowned organist and Yale professor Thomas Murray. He is held in particularly high regard among his fellow virtuosos for his mastery of the grand “symphonic style” of organ playing, in evidence here. Fans of great orchestral classics will immediately recognize both pieces featured here: Edvard Grieg’s popular Holberg Suite and César Franck’s monumental Symphony in D Minor, in stunning transcriptions for organ, the instrument best suited to recreate an orchestra’s power, nuance and variety of sonorities.

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!
