“A fascinating, satisfying programme... Jennifer Koh and Shai Wosner have clearly made great efforts to enter the expressive world of all the composers, and the performances show a high level of technical assurance. The account of the Janacek is one of the finest I've heard.” - Gramophone Magazine “Janacek’s searching, strangely beautiful Violin Sonata and Bartok’s pugnacious, rhapsodic Violin Sonata No. 1 turn up in recordings, but not often in accounts as gripping as these by the probing violinist Jennifer Koh and the dynamic pianist Shai Wosner. In an inventive stroke, this duo plays these formidable works along with a series of ingenious and impish pieces by the Hungarian modernist master Gyorgy Kurtag.” - The New York Times Violinist Jennifer Koh and pianist Shai Wosner present Signs, Games + Messages, a collection of pieces by 20th-century composers Janáček, Bartók, and Kurtág. All influenced by the folk music of their homelands (Hungary and the Czech lands respectively), this release focuses in particular on Kurtág, a contemporary Hungarian composer who revels in miniature compositions, with his works neatly framed by violin sonatas by Janáček and Bartók, performed with grit and verve by Koh and Wosner.

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!
