Digital Booklet
"... a fascinating programme of out-of-the-way Russian repertoire ... she (Mordkovich) is a passionate advocate for everything she plays, her accompanists are excellent and no collector of Russian/Soviet music would want to miss the chance to encounter Volkonsky’s Viola Sonata, or to thank her and Chandos for the opportunity." - Gramophone The late violinist and violist Lydia Mordkovitch presents a passionate recital of Russian music which includes the world premiere recording of Volkonsky's Sonata for Viola and Piano, the centerpiece of this collection. Mordkovitch is accompanied on these works by pianists Nicholas Walker and Julian Milford.

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!
