Digital Booklet
Violinist Beata Halska and pianist Claudio Chaiquin present this programme dedicated to Florent Schmitt, one of the most original French composers of his generation. Halska plays an instrument from 1835 on the album which includes three world premiere digital recordings. The chamber music chosen shows the most personal side of Schmitt, most notably the Sonate libre, one of his most admired works, a bold diptych with lyric rhapsody at its core but one that also evokes the tragedies of the First World War.

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!
