Austrian clarinetist Andreas Ottensamer explores the connections Brahms had to Hungarian folk music traditions on this recording, featuring Leonidas Kavakos, Antoine Tamestit, members of the Berlin Philharmonic and Vienna Philharmonic and Hungarian folk musicians. The programme includes the Clarinet Quintet, one of the most seminal works for the instrument, combined with Hungarian dances and waltzes, all newly arranged to include additional material from the composer's original musical sources with an authentic folk twist. Ottensamer, himself half-Hungarian, naturally recognizes Brahms’s Clarinet Quintet as “genuinely one of the monuments of the entire clarinet repertoire, a piece that every clarinetist dreams of playing.”

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!
