This volume comes from the Parlophone/Warner collection, The Menuhin Century.

As a musician, as a man of ideals, and as a true world citizen, Yehudi Menuhin made an extraordinary mark on his era. The Menuhin Century commemorates the 100th anniversary of his birth on 22 April 1916.These recordings depict Menuhin as a maker of musical history and place him in the context of momentous historical events. The Historic Recordings includes Menuhin's collaborations with such figures as Sir Edward Elgar, Wilhelm Furtwängler, Sir John Barbirolli, Charles Munch and David Oistrakh, and features recordings made in Moscow in 1945 and in Budapest during the Hungarian Uprising of 1956.

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!
