"... genius at work ... there's a wealth of color and expression here, aided by some fascinating harmonics ... Sturm proves an able soloist on the very fine organ at Rottenburg Cathedral. She makes the Sonatas particularly interesting ... very good sound ..."
- Classical.Net

Paul Hindemith was no organ music specialist. Despite, or perhaps precisely because of this, he created a body of work that is an integral part of 20th century organ literature and is nowadays, after a long period of reserve on the part of many organists, very popular. His three Organ Sonatas are among the great modern works with their mastery of counterpoint, clarity of form, bold harmonic language and deeply expressive treatment of melody. The Two Organ Pieces are Hindemith’s earliest works for the instrument and the Interludien, from his piano cycle Ludus Tonalis arranged here for organ, form a sequence of beautiful and colourful fantasia-like character pieces.

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!
