Latvian violinist and conductor Gidon Kremer and his Kremerata Baltica Chamber Orchestra present this album showcasing the Violin Concerto No. 2 - The American Four Seasons by Philip Glass. Also included are companion pieces by Arvo Pärt and Giya Kancheli, two composers who are both closely associated with Kremer and who both celebrate their 80th birthdays in 2015, the year of this release. Kremer also features a short piece by film composer Shigeru Umebayashi to complete the programme.

"Music as seasons: they are both part of our culture, our language for describing the pulse of life. This album of New Seasons is evidence of that."
- Gidon Kremer

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!
