"Scarborough Variations" is the title of a work available for some time now in various versions and recordings. With this album it can now finally be heard on its own. "Scarborough Variations" is also the title of the whole disc. As with "Aeolian Green", these are recordings which radiate their magical effects from the very first note.

On hearing this music one asks oneself again and again how it is that these harmonies resonate the lowest strings in one’s own being, quite why these melodies stick around in one's head for hours and for days, and how a piano can sound both so archaic and so perfect at the same time. […] Every note in this music calls out to the listener, ushering in a timeless present in which things in and around us miraculously unscramble themselves."
- Michael Wollny, Leipzig, 2018

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!
