The Finnish-Dutch collaboration of Minna Pensola, Antti Tikkanen and Tuomas Lehto with double bassist Niek de Groot explore the double bass quartets of Rossini and Franz Anton Hoffmeister on this BIS release. Rossini's instrumentation was determined by the forces available to him around the home of his patron Agostino Triossi in Ravenna, while Hoffmeister—composing in the double bass rich environment of Vienna—chose to give the instrument a virtuosic role in his works, making for a charming programme of late 18th- and early 19th-century chamber works.

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!
