"The recording, made in a small 14th century church north of Stockholm, is warm and atmospheric. The whole project became a labour of love and it is good to be able to report that the finished result is every bit as successful as he could ever have hoped ... this is no easy listening assignment. It sometimes makes you feel quite exhausted but renewed listening pays dividends." - MusicWeb International Violinist Ulf Wallin takes on the challenge of Claude Loyola Allgén's epic Violin Sonata on this album, spread out over three discs. With a running time exceeding two-and-a-half hours, the sonata is believed to be the longest piece of music of its kind ever composed. In the liner notes, Wallin says that this project was by far the most taxing he has ever undertaken, requiring many recording sessions during a period of more than two years, preceded by years of study and practice.

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!
