This album brings together four previously unrecorded works whose stimulating and demanding character are uniquely suited to the dynamic energy of clarinetist Richard Spece and pianist Read Gainsford. Among the pieces on this programme is the clarinet sonata by cutting edge composer William O. Smith, also known as Dave Brubeck’s colleague Bill Smith, noted for his groundbreaking use of clarinet multiphonics. Spece wrote his doctoral thesis about the works of Smith and his knowledge of the composer informs this recording.

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!
