"Great late night listening."
- Classic FM

Four of the most promising classical musicians of their generation come together on this album to push the boundaries of classical music. The Ensemble Contaste uses four instruments in its surprisingly experimental musical amalgamations: piano, violin, viola and cello. The diversity and spontaneity of the artists who make up this unusual ensemble allow them to offer an original programme, from classical music to tango, from musicals to contemporary creations. This 2013 release includes works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Karol Beffa, Johan Farjot, Raphaël Imbert, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Henry Purcell, among others.

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!
