Incantation holds many mysteries. The brilliant violinist Virgil Boutellis-Taft strips away the veil of its secret powers, the ones that lie inside his violin's fascinating chant. Sometimes violent and fiery, as in Saint-Saëns' Danse macabre, sometimes tender, as in Tchaikovsky and Bruch, incantation is indeed deeply rooted in musical history, from Vitali's Chaconne to the 'Yumeji's Theme', part of the soundtrack of the film In the Mood for Love. Over and over, it kept inspiring many composers their most captivating works. Virgil Boutellis-Taft and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, under's Jac Van Steen direction, show remarkable eloquence in this magical recording: one can only fall under these spells.

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!
