British composer Mark Bowden's passion for orchestral writing and its enormous timbral range is evident on his debut album of works, written between 2005 and 2015. On the intoxicating Lyra for cello and orchestra, the solo cello part calls for a blistering technique and was written for Oliver Coates, who performs it on this recording. Heartland was created as both a standalone percussion concerto and a ballet score, while the oldest piece and title work Sudden Light explores the play of consonance and dissonance through the overtones of the harmonic series. As a contrast to the orchestral selections, Five Memos is a light, airy interplay between violinist Hyeyoon Park and pianist Huw Watkins.

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!
