Norwegian specialist ensemble BIT20 and Swiss conductor Baldur Brönnimann tackle the complex scores of György Ligeti, considered one of the most innovative and influential among progressive figures of his time. The three works presented here were written during the composer's highly productive period in the 1960s and 1970s and explore in different ways the idea of the concerto as something collective, rather than polarizing between the one and the many. Swiss cellist Christian Poltéra and Finnish pianist Joonas Ahonen are the featured soloists on their respective concertos.

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!
