"Mordkovitch here transformed the elusive Elgar Violin Sonata. In rapt and concentrated playing she gives it new mystery, with the subtlest pointing and shading down to whispered pianissimos."
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

The late Russian violinist Lydia Mordkovitch and British pianist Julian Milford recorded this Elgar programme in 1996, combining some of Elgar’s most popular works for violin and piano with some much rarer repertoire. Elgar’s music for violin and piano spans the whole of his creative life: the violin was his own instrument which he began learning at the age of 12 and as a young man he made his living by both playing and teaching the instrument.

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!
