BBC National Orchestra of Wales and conductor Andrew Constantine present Elgar: The New England Connection, a release which explores the parallels and contrasts between the lives and music of England's Edward Elgar and New England's little-known George Whitefield Chadwick. A member of the so-called Second New England School along with composers such as Amy Beach, Chadwick was interested in developing a distinctly American sound, while Elgar's came to be seen as embodying an English style by commentators. This release pairs Chadwick's Symphonic Sketches with Elgar's famous “Enigma” Variations, which the National Orchestra musicians treat with equal verve and intensity.

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!
