Primarily remembered today as a musicologist and music theorist, Sir Donald Tovey was also a composer, and by no means a dry academic one. This release from the Ormesby Ensemble is the second volume to explore chamber works by this eminent English figure, and includes the engaging and often unexpected Variations on a Theme by Gluck with the Brahmsian Piano Quintet in C Major, making for an expertly performed introduction to Tovey's creative works.

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!
