On his first solo album, award-winning cellist Michael Samis presents the premiere of the neglected Concerto for Cello and Orchestra in D Minor by Carl Heinrich Reinecke, a prolific Romantic-era composer. Samis says he was inspired to learn the piece due to its “soaring melodies and brilliant virtuosity." He is accompanied on the programme, which includes shorter works by Schumann, Block, Tavener and Golijov, by the Gateway Chamber Orchestra under Gregory Wolynec. Of Reinecke's nearly 300 works, the vast majority are rarely performed today and remain largely unknown.

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!
