George Gershwin (1898-1937) was one of the first and most successful composers bringing Afro-American styles such as jazz, spirituals and blues to classical music, making it swing more than ever before. It is hard to sit still while listening to Gershwin Famous Pieces, which contains some of his most appealing works, from Rhapsody in Blue, An American in Paris, I Got Rhythm, Someone to Watch Over Me, as well as his magnum opus Porgy & Bess with the legendary song Summertime. They are performed by Angel Blue, Marin Alsop, Denis Kozhukhin, Matt Haimovitz, Veschko Eschkenazy, Andrés Orozco-Estrada, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Houston Symphony, as well as many others.

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!
