"Special Merit Pick ... enchantingly handled by Krainis ... an exquisite and comforting sound ... ably assisted by the London Strings under Marriner's direction."
- Billboard

On this reissue of a 1966 album, late American recorder soloist Bernard Krainis and the London Strings led by Sir Neville Marriner move deftly through four Baroque concertos for recorders, strings and harpischord composed by Handel, Telemann and Vivaldi. Krainis alternates between the alto, soprano and sopranino recorders on this attractively-recorded programme.

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!
