Total Playing Time    76:57
Leading Irish pianist Michael McHale presents this album dedicated to the works of composer Philip Hammond, who created his Miniatures and Modulations based on Edward Bunting’s collection of the Ancient Music of Ireland. Bunting’s arrangement is the Miniature and Hammond’s is the Modulation. Several of these recordings are world premieres. "I first performed Philip Hammond’s music when I was 15 years of age and I have been playing it ever since. I greatly admire his very personal and pianistic style. I was delighted to subsequently make this first recording of the entire collection. I very much enjoyed recording all of these musical gems and I hope they will provide the listener with as much enjoyment!" - Michael McHale

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!
