Harpsichordist Mitzi Meyerson likes to come up with surprising musical finds or rediscoveries and this album dedicated to Giovanni Battista Somis is as fascinating as any of her previous recordings. Indeed, she chanced upon the score for these Baroque violin sonatas, first published in 1717, when investigating the works of Richard Jones in the British Library, thereby unearthing another trove of forgotten Baroque gems. Somis studied with Corelli in Rome, later befriended Vivaldi and himself taught many subsequent prominent violinists, including Jean-Marie Leclair. Together with violinist Kreeta-Maria Kentala and cellist Lauri Pulakka, Meyerson fully enters into the Baroque spirit of transcribing and arranging by varying the sonatas with all the stylistic experience and insight that modern day musicians can offer.

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!
