"The two sonatas are attractive works written in Raphael’s blend of late Romanticism and Hindemithian neo-classicism. The Third is likewise smoothly lyrical, very nicely rendered here by Jürgen Weber ... can safely be recommended."
- Gramophone

German violist Jürgen Weber presents two solo sonatas each by Paul Hindemith and Günther Raphael on this acclaimed 2012 recording. Weber's playing showcases resilient tempos, a large tone and lightning virtuosic passages on this demanding, sensuous music of the 20th century, compellingly interpreted and delivered in lush, sonorous sound.

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!
