"Five Stars. The results are convincing ... you may be surprised at how idiomatic these pieces sound in their freshly conceived colours."
- BBC Music Magazine

The first arranger of Vivaldi’s concertos was Vivaldi himself; Julian Lloyd Webber’s versions on this recording reflect the composer’s pragmatic attitude and zest for experiment. Vivaldi’s Concerto in G Minor is his only original concerto for two cellos. Alongside this concerto appear works both popular and recently discovered, the mercurial moods of the cellos representing instruments from mandolins to hunting horns. Piazzolla’s Milonga which concludes this programme displays all of his most distinctive hallmarks.

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!
