Insomnia from German pianist Kai Schumacher takes listeners on a nocturnal odyssey into a mystical and unpredictable world that remains hidden during the day. The album features works about the night by five American composers, written over a period of nearly 100 years. Alongside music by George Gershwin, John Cage, George Crumb and Brian Belet is Urban Nocturnes, a piece by Bruce Stark composed specifically for this recording.

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!
