Period guitarist James Akers and his duo partner, fortepianist Gary Branch, present music written with domestic settings in mind by some of the leading composers of the Classical era, most of whom were residents of Vienna at some point in their careers. Recorded on period instruments, including a rare original 1826 fortepiano by Conrad Graf, this elegant album marks one of the last to be made in Kent’s Finchcocks Musical Museum.
96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – Resonus Limited Studio Masters

Recorded at Finchocks House and Musical Museum, Kent, November 1 - 3, 2015
Producer, engineer and editor: Adam Binks

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!
