The Cello in Wartime sees Steven Isserlis (cello) and Connie Shih (piano) commemorate centenaries related to the First World War with a collection of solo and accompanied works by art music composers from France, Britain, and Australia alongside popular songs. The first half of the programme presents moving pieces by Debussy, Fauré, Webern, Saint-Saëns, and Frank Bridge, while the second presents arrangements of pieces heard in the trenches of Ypres with Isserlis performing on a so-called ‘trench cello’, a make shift instrument made from found objects.

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!
