This album contains the world premiere of late composer James Horner’s Pas de Deux for violin, cello and orchestra, commissioned and performed by Norwegian brother and sister duo Mari (on violin) and Hakon (on cello) Samuelsen. The work is a rare passage into purist classical music for Academy Award winner Horner (Titanic) and heralds a climactic working partnership with the Norwegian duo.

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!
