The Novaya Rossiya State Symphony Orchestra and Alexander Walker celebrate the orchestral works of British contemporary composer Robin Walker, whose music acknowledges nature as the paramount creative force. Continuing a tradition that passes through Beethoven, Brahms, Elgar, Sibelius, Tippett and Birtwistle, he challenges the intellectual emphasis of modernism by channelling emotional energy into form, marrying subjective feeling and discipline in what he calls "passionate classicism." This union of instinct and structure has yielded some of the most vigorous and exciting orchestral music of recent years, as the four powerful pieces on this album demonstrate.

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!
