"It’s brave of Julia Fischer to tackle the Mount Everest of music for solo violin at the age of 21. The young German is up against some stiff competition, but she acquits herself well."
- Classic FM

"Recording of the Month. Julia Fischer is no longer a talented child; she is a highly skilled young woman of 21 ... there is no doubt we will be hearing a great deal from Fischer in the years to come ... listen and be impressed."
- MusicWeb International

This highly-acclaimed double album from Julia Fischer earned worldwide critical praise including the rare distinction of winning three of France's most prestigious awards: the Diapason d'Or; the CHOC from Le Monde de la Musique and the highest rating from Classica Repertoire. She was also named "Best Newcomer" in 2006 by the BBC Music Magazine.

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!
