Finnish pianist Joonas Ahonen unites sonatas by the innovative early 20th-century composer Charles Ives on this release for BIS. The collection open with the Violin Sonata No. 4 “Children's Day at the Camp Meeting”, inspired by Ives's childhood memories of the Christian revival movement, and for which Ahonen is joined by violinist and compatriot Pekka Kuusisto. The centrepiece of the release, however, is the monumental “Concord” Piano Sonata, years ahead of its time, whose movements are named after important figures of the transcendentalism movement, including the Alcott family.

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!
