Juno Award - Classical Album of the Year: Solo or Chamber Ensemble, 2013

"This is a wonderful album, not only eclectic and fun but a real musical education. Bravo, Amici!"
- Fanfare

"... makes an eloquent case for a wide range of pieces that bridge the cultural and religious divides of easternmost Europe and the Middle East ... thanks to powerful performances, all 10 pieces beckon enticingly."
- The Toronto Star

"... a wide range of pieces make up the passionately played program of this superb recording. The performance of these dances is highly spirited and showcases the artistry and virtuosity of the core ensemble.The string playing is rhapsodic and committed and the whole disc exudes polish and thoughtful musicianship."
- The WholeNote

The fascinating and mystifying sounds and colours of Levant, the “region of the rising Sun,” are the focus of this Juno Award-winning recording by the Amici Ensemble. With music inspired by the Near East, the journey starts in the Balkans, moves into Israel, the Arabian Peninsula and up to the Caucasus mountains and features an eclectic selection of works by Prokofiev, Gurdjieff, Golijov and Abou-Khalil, among others.

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!
