The regions of Austria and Hungary have a rich history of music, art and culture, where Beethoven, Artur Schnabel and Emanuel Moór, among many others, developed their craft and influenced the traditions of European art music. On this programme, cellist Sam Magill presents works that not only expand the cello repertoire and illustrate his virtuosity, technical aplomb, conviction and expressiveness, but enrich understanding of these composers, their music and their heritage. Magill is joined on the 1822 arrangement of Beethoven’s Violin Sonata No. 9 by pianist Beth Levin, who together perform the challenging composition with aplomb and austerity, restoring certain passages from the original manuscript to expose the piece's virtuosic elements while retaining clarity of sound. Levin also appears on the album's closer, Moór's Ballade in E Major.

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!
