"[Hoppe and Beatson's] account of the Poulenc [is] tense, dramatic and imaginative, with Beatson piling up huge, gothic crags of tone at the tragic climaxes and Hoppe glinting and whispering in the brooding central elegy... like everything else on this enjoyable but idiosyncratic disc, it’s certainly not short of character."
- Gramophone

Award-winning musician Esther Hoppe has established herself as a stylistically confident and virtuosic violinist in both the solo and chamber music repertoires. Together with Scottish pianist Alasdair Beatson, Hoppe released a highly praised album of works by Mozart and Stravinsky in 2014: the sequel presented here was recorded in Munich in April 2016 and showcases Hoppe's fine instrument, a 1690 violin by Gioffredo Cappa.

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!
