Digital Booklet
Spanish cellist Josetxu Obregón and his ensemble La Ritirata shed light on the history of 18th century cello music and performance in Spain. The programme provides a sample of pieces which undoubtedly would have been heard in Spain during the infancy of the instrument there and in the period leading into the Age of the Enlightenment. Many of these works are being recorded for the first time, including a new reading of Boccherini’s evocative Fandango, drawn from the Guitar Quintet No. 4, complete with castanets.

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!
