Violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen continues her acclaimed series of concerto recordings with contrasting works by American composers John Adams and Roy Harris. The Adams piece, already considered by many to be a modern classic, was described by the composer as having a "hypermelody" in which the soloist plays long phrases without stopping for the duration of the 35 minutes. Although written in 1949, the first performance of the Harris concerto didn’t occur until 1984. Since then it has been championed for its luminous orchestration and exalted tone but has been rarely recorded. Waley-Cohen and the BBC Symphony Orchestra bring both works to life here, under American conductor Andrew Litton.

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!
