"Four Stars ... a set of sometimes brooding and rather clandestine music, but it has its own kind of melancholy beauty and plenty of wayward exuberance, too."
- The Guardian

"... this intimate live recording (is) something to celebrate ... the pair demonstrates surprising empathy, dynamically swelling to mini-climaxes ... may be the first, but is hopefully not the last time these two simpatico musicians come together in such a vulnerable but ultimately revelatory context."
- All About Jazz

Transylvanian Concert from Romanian pianist and composer Lucian Ban and American violist Mat Maneri documents a spontaneously organized live performance in June 2011 in Targu Mures, the region where Ban grew up. Presented to a large, appreciative, highly-attentive audience, the programme comprises self-penned ballads, blues, hymns and abstract improvisations, plus Maneri's chilling solo performance of the spiritual Nobody Knows The Trouble I’ve Seen, the whole informed by the twin traditions of jazz and European chamber music.

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!
