"Finnissy takes tunes, breaks them down into non-musical bits and then reassembles them; sometimes the instruments combine to create a pattern, sometimes they don't. He's approaching it with some wit though … it is surprisingly melodic." - The Chronicle Violinist Darragh Morgan and pianist Mary Dullea present this album of British composer Michael Finnissy's complete (to date) music for violin and piano, accompanied on second piano and harpischord on three pieces by the composer himself. Finnissy, considered among the best of today's composers, demonstrates his wry, sardonic sense of humour and reluctance to be taken too seriously even when playing serious music on Molly House, performed on household implements.

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!
