A special Nordic blend of lightness and melancholy is shared by the five piano trios on this album, although it is indeed five highly individual composers who are presented here by the prizewinning chamber ensemble Ismena Trio. The programme ranges from Svend Hvidtfelt Nielsen’s dynamic inwardness through Jesper Koch’s elegance and Lars Hegaard’s sound-objects to Ib Nørholm’s masterly, rigourous expression and Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s no less rigorously controlled yet more surprising exchanges of opinions between the instruments.

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!
