Violinist Maria Bachmann is the featured soloist on this performance of Paul Moravec's 2013 revision of his Violin Concerto, receiving its world premiere recording here. Rossen Milanov conducts the ensemble Symphony in C on the grandly conceived work which rates among one of Moravec's most important accomplishments: with its romantically sensuous elegance and joyous finale, the concerto has already earned a place as one of the outstanding American works in the genre. Two other pieces on the programme are also world premieres: the elegiac Shakuhachi Quintet which integrates the classical Japanese bamboo flute with the Western string quartet, while Equilibrium was composed especially for this album and recalls the B-A-C-H motive also heard in the Violin Concerto. The final work, Evermore, was written in 2004 as a wedding gift for Bachmann.

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!
