“... beautifully sung ... Connolly is magnificently desolate and accusatory in the final song of bereavement, with a graphic sense of withdrawal from the world before the healing keyboard postlude."
- Gramophone

"Four Stars ... Connolly reveals much of the composer's fervent inwardness, something she and her accompanist, Eugene Asti, capture so well throughout. Connolly creates a special sense of intimacy here ... warmly breathed and beautifully shaped."
- BBC Music Magazine

British mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly, twice nominated for a Grammy, performs a collection of songs by Robert Schumann, accompanied at the piano by Eugene Asti. Connolly's programme combines two song cycles from the extremely prolific "song" year 1840 with several songs from the composer’s last years. Connolly says she fell in love with Schumann’s songs in her youth and has sung them since her early days as a performer.

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!
