Following a highly successful recording of Copland’s ballets, the BBC Philharmonic presents this second volume of the composer’s complete symphonic output, led by John Wilson, renowned for his interpretations of American music. This unique collection of vivid and energetic pieces highlights Copland’s personal, unorthodox language. The mixture of works of austerity and tense excitement ranges widely, from the Orchestral Variations on an original theme (first composed for piano) to the controversial Symphonic Ode, a rhythmically complex piece written in its original incarnation for a huge orchestra including eight horns and five trumpets. The album also spotlights the lesser known Short Symphony No. 2 and the early Symphony for Organ and Orchestra, in which the solo instrument throughout is closely integrated with the music of the orchestra. The featured organist is the young, internationally acclaimed Jonathan Scott.

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!
