“Ulf Wallin is a mesmerizing soloist especially in Quasi una Sonata, and the Tapiola Sinfonietta play as if they thought every note was written in blood.” - BBC Music Magazine This recording of Alfred Schnittke's violin works displays the composer's stylstic fusion of the historical and the modern in full force with pieces such as Quasi una sonata and Suite in the Old Style. Recorded by Schnittke collaborator Ulf Wallin with the support of the Tapiola Sinfonietta directed by Ralf Gothóni, this is a invigorating interpretation of some of the German composer's most famous works.

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!
