Award-winning German violinist Anton Steck joins Matthew Halls and the Baroque chamber orchestra L‘arpa festante on violin concertos by Viennese composer Franz Alexander Pössinger and his friend Beethoven. Steck presents the world premiere of Pössinger's concerto, written in 1805, just one year before Beethoven's popular concerto. It took Beethoven's work more than three decades to conquer the concert hall, ultimately gaining its popularity through two printed revisions published in Vienna and in London, which both reveal substantial changes in the solo parts. The quest for Beethoven’s "original version" proves to be extremely complicated, as Beethoven himself offered up to four alternatives to the soloists in some spots of the manuscript. A study of the different inks and quills used in that autograph allowed Steck to propose the unusual version recorded here, a tangible and transparent rendering of a famous piece thanks to the use of historical instruments.

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!
