Alongside its much-lauded Copland series, the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra embarks on an American journey with chief guest conductor, John Storgårds. Known as "the bad boy of music," George Antheil began his career with a reputation as an enfant terrible, composing shockingly avant-garde works such as his ever-popular Ballet mecanique, inspired by the dynamism and dissonances of Stravinsky’s early ballets. Although he is well established on the film music scene, it is his symphonic output, sampled here, that survives in the concert hall. This series documents the evolution of his style, which moved towards a fundamentally tonal and melody-based idiom as Antheil joined the growing ranks of famous US symphonists. In addition to the war-inspired Fourth Symphony and the "joyous" Fifth Symphony, the programme features the premiere recording of the Texas-inspired Over the Plains, memorable for its allusions to cowboy music and offering some unexpectedly dramatic and atmospheric twists along the way.

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!
