Robert DiLutis and the Mellifera Quartet give sparkling performances of beloved classics such as Weber’s Clarinet Quintet along with delightful but lesser-known works such as Erland von Koch’s Monolog 3 for Solo Clarinet and Heinrich Joseph Baermann’s Adagio for Clarinet and Strings (known for decades as “Wagner’s Adagio”). DiLutis describes the Weber Quintet as “a dream come true for clarinetists,” and that description could well apply to the other pieces on this album. Rounded out with consummate presentations of Glazunov’s Rêverie orientale, Miklós Rózsa’s Sonatina and Willson Osborne’s Rhapsody for Clarinet, the selections on this album offer a superb survey of works for solo clarinet and clarinet and strings. Robert DiLutis founded the Riversdale Chamber Music Society six years ago, and the presentations at the historic Riversdale House Museum have been captivating audiences ever since. This is the first release of music heard at the mansion.

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!
