"... the quality of the performances (and of the music itself) is gratifyingly high."
- Classical.Net

"... they play with security, splendid commitment and feeling. James Buswell is a superbly accomplished, dedicated and spontaneous soloist and the recording is first class."
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

"Editor's Choice. The National Symphony Orchestra plays with splendid commitment, much subtlety of expression and fine ensemble ... Buswell is a superbly accomplished soloist with a full timbre and the recording is first class and very well balanced ... an essential purchase ..."
- Gramophone

Internationally recognized violinist James Buswell imbues these rarely-recorded works by influential American contemporary composer Walter Piston with authority and tonal strength, backed by the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine under Theodor Kuchař. Recorded in Kiev in 1998, this album has been highly praised by critics over the years for the performances of both the orchestra and the soloist.

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!
