“Tamestit brings his wonderful musical intelligence to bear on some of the greatest music written for the instrument ... from both a performance and repertoire point of view, there is surely no better introduction to Hindemith's viola music ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

Considered one of the best viola players in the world, Antoine Tamestit dedicates this album to German composer Paul Hindemith, released to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his death in 2013. Not only a composer, Hindemith was a renowned viola player whose compositions for the instrument range from solo pieces to concertos. Featuring the Frankfurt Radio Symphony conducted by leading conductor Paavo Järvi, Tamestit is joined on this recording by pianist Markus Hadulla.

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!
