Los Angeles-based composer Paul Reale studied with George Rochberg and George Crumb, is a professor emeritus in the music department at UCLA and won the Luckman Prize in 1995. Written especially for violin soloist Jessica Mathaes, Seven Deadly Sins uses observations of human nature as well as the emotions associated with mortal transgression, creating a work full of surprise and psychological contrast. This album of all world premiere recordings ends on a much lighter note with Holiday Suite, based on familiar winter holiday tunes. The suite is "good time music, melody driven and devoid of pretension," according to Reale. Seven Deadly Sins was recorded at the studios of KUHA-FM, a Houston public radio station, in 2012 with Mathaes and pianist Colette Valentine.

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!
