"Five Stars ... Ehnes delivers a magisterial performance ..." - BBC Music Magazine "... the main item that makes it a must-have acquisition is the gorgeous E Minor Sonata, which Ehnes and Armstrong deliver with expressive romantic fervor." - Fanfare "Ehnes gives a stunning account of the solo sonata ... clarity of articulation, beauty of sound, the ease with which he surmounts the technical challenges and deep understanding of the work’s structure and character; all these combine to make a performance that’s exciting and enthralling ..." - Gramophone Award-winning vioinist James Ehnes presents his second album of chamber works by Bartók, an acclaimed series that established his formidable reputation as a Bartók interpreter. His accompanist once again is Andrew Armstrong, a pianist praised by critics for his passionate expression and dazzling technique.

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!
