Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    77:02
This is the last release in a Vaughan Williams recording project that has spanned over 25 years. Featuring the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra led by Sir Andrew Davis with baritone Roderick Williams, soprano Mari Eriksmoen, and pianists Louis Lortie and Hélène Mercier, this grand finale presents a range of works from a symphony to songs and a double concerto. The centrepiece is the epic Sinfonia antartica, based on Vaughan Williams's score for the 1948 film Scott of the Antarctic, which is expertly balanced with the recently orchestrated Four Last Songs and the dynamic Concerto for 2 Pianos.

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!
