"... Alsop shows a keen sensitivity to both scores and balances their rhetoric with the clean-edged clarity of their textures."

Marin Alsop conducts the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and solo cellist Wendy Warner on these works by Samuel Barber. The Cello Concerto is offered together on this album with a suite from the ballet music for Medea, originally written for Martha Graham. Best known of all Barber's music is his evocative Adagio for Strings, a work of deep feeling that has earned a firm place in American repertoire.

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!
