These pieces, all world premiere recordings, are some of the best of many new works commissioned by the internationally acclaimed, award-winning Canadian ensemble the Gryphon Trio. Among the highlights are Brian Current’s These Begin to Catch Fire, inspired by patterns of brilliant sunlight reflecting off the waters of Ontario's Lake Muskoka. Michael Oesterle’s Centennials is a tribute to three figures who would have celebrated their 100th birthday in 2012, including Julia Child and Jackson Pollock. The closing work, a song cycle by James K. Wright, was inspired by Beethoven’s passionate letters to his eternally mysterious Immortal Beloved.

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!
