Digital Booklet
“Grundman’s writing for string quartet is expert and resourceful, his loose-limbed melodic lines and rich while rarely cloying diatonic harmonies providing a variegated context for soprano-writing which ranges from confiding to histrionic, all securely encompassed by Susana Cordón ... The Brodsky perform with their customary tonal warmth and attention to detail, the spaciously immediate sound testify to the composer’s concern for presenting his music within a sympathetic ambience ..." - Gramophone Jorge Grundman uses his unique compositional voice to create music which, above all, communicates with remarkable directness. The simplicity and strength of his artistic vision, intended to reach the widest audience possible, is clear in A Mortuis Resurgere, a work receiving its premiere recording here. Scored for soprano and string quartet, A Mortuis Resurgere tells the story of the resurrection of Christ. Throughout its extended single movement the soprano soloist is required to use a wide range of expressive vocal techniques to communicate the meaning of the Latin text. Supporting the soprano voice is the string quartet, its slowly changing harmonies animated by a surface of rapid rhythmic figurations, all of which combine to produce shifting textures. The contemplative modal-based harmonies are typical of Grundman’s style and form a part of his artistic vision to bridge the gap between pop and classical music. Renowned for its diverse and pioneering collaborations, the Brodsky Quartet has been vital in the development of Grundman’s style, having worked closely with the composer on a number of his earlier works. Joining the Brodsky Quartet on this 2014 release is Spanish soprano Susana Cordón, for whom the challenging vocal part was written.

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!
