"If you’re mad about the Rite it’s an essential recording, fascinating to hear the emphasis Craft places on balance and colour ... it’s pretty amazing to hear the Philharmonia eat this score up, some of the best orchestral playing on offer today. Jennifer Frautschi is a real surprise in the Violin Concerto, making this masterpiece sound far easier than it is ... this is almost irresistible."
- Limelight

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!
