Award-winning German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser has chosen to record the pinnacle of the repertoire for cello and orchestra on this album, Dvořák's Cello Concerto, joined by the PKF - Prague Philharmonia. The monumental work explores the entire spectrum of human emotion, very much inspired by the composer's own experiences. Moser and conductor Jakub Hrůša used Dvořák's own manuscript in order to come closer to the composer's intention rather than relying on unquestioned traditions and acquired habits, while paying tribute to the concerto's nickname, "Dvořák's 10th Symphony." Moser completes the programme with Édouard Lalo's Cello Concerto, a composition of great verve which fully embodies Spanish flair combined with romantic spirit. "The unifying motif between these two cello concertos is a sense of yearning: from America, Dvořák yearned for his homeland and an unfulfilled love, whereas Lalo yearned for the typically Spanish flair and the Mediterranean temperament." - Johannes Moser

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!
