"...full of innovative writing and colourful textures, the playing is neat and often exuberant." - The Strad "The players that make up the ARC Ensemble give deeply committed performances... Urgently recommended." - Fanfare Magazine Grammy-nominated group the ARC Ensemble acts as cultural ambassadors in their quest to perform music outside the normal Western musical canon. This album marks the beginning of their new chamber series of composers who were forced to leave Europe in the 1930s. This album highlights the compositional output of the German-born Jewish composer Paul Ben-Haim who fleed to Palestine in 1933.

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!
