Robert Fürstenthal fled Vienna to the United States during World War II where he made his living as an accountant; the fact that he had written a few songs in his youth was soon forgotten. The rediscovery, after 35 years, of the woman who had been his first love rekindled not only that flame but also his urge to compose. So inspired was he that achingly lovely songs, laden with an autumnal sense of loss, started to flow, preserving the spirit of fin-de-siècle Vienna under the Californian sun. He died in late 2016 at the age of 96, as this album was in preparation, knowing that some of his many songs at last were about to find their audience. Baritone Rafael Fingerlos is accompanied by Sascha El Moissi at the piano on these world premiere recordings.

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!
