British composer Nigel Clarke grew up surrounded by brass band music, an experience apparent in his concerto for cornet, Mysteries of the Horizon, which makes full virtuosic use of that instrument, performed with dexterity by Harmen Vanhoorne. The concerto is paired with Clarke’s Symphony No. 1 for Speaker & Wind Orchestra "A Richer Dust”, a much darker work which reflects on the constant presence of violence in human existence and incorporates text by Danish writer Malene Sheppard Skærved.

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!
