On this album of world premieres, violinist Andrew Kirkman and pianist Clipper Erickson perform Cyril Scott's sonatas spanning a 46 year period, played with sensitivity and fantastic musical engagement. The duo provides a bookend glimpse into Scott's musical development in the context of a classical music world almost completely transformed during this period. Largely neglected since his death in 1970, the advent of the 21st century has ignited a rediscovery of this iconoclastic composer; Dawn and Twilight is at the forefront of this rediscovery.

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!
