Alasdair Beatson and Alec Frank-Gemmill combine a recital and a history lesson on this unique album. The young British team presents music written between 1800 and 1942, playing no less than eight different historic instruments: four horns and four pianos. They offer the opportunity to hear the works on instruments that composers Beethoven, Saint-Saëns, Rossini, Schumann and Strauss would have recognized, whether a natural horn from 1800, a fortepiano from 1815, or a Bechstein from 1898. Both notable performers on modern instruments, Frank-Gemmill and Beatson here revel in the sonic possibilities of the historic instruments with results that are as delighting as they are enlightening.

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!
