Digital Booklet

"... engineering provides both clarity and depth, reflecting its chosen venue. Recommended for the repertoire and performances ..."
- Fanfare

"The recording, as we expect from Chandos, is exemplary allowing clear representations of both the players and the acoustic they are enjoying."
- Early Music Review

"Four Stars ... splendidly played ... apart from the Christmas Concerto No. 6, not a note is otherwise currently available on disc; such undeserved neglect earns this disc a particularly warm welcome."
- BBC Music Magazine

Simon Standage and his early music ensemble Collegium Musicum 90 showcase works by native Verona composer and violinist Giuseppe Torelli, most of them not available on any other recordings. This album of Torelli's most influential music contains six fully developed three-movement solo violin concertos and six for two violins.

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!
