Digital Booklet
Duration    1h 39m 25s
Distinguished South African violinist Piet Koornhof takes the spotlight on this double album consisting of virtuoso showpieces for his instrument, selections both well known and rare. He tackles some of the most brilliant and technically challenging repertoire for violin ever written: glittering masterpieces by fabled masters such as Henryk Wienawski, Fritz Kreisler and Eugene Ÿsaye. Among the rarely-presented works are treasures by Glazunov, Kroll, Taneyev, Rota and Karayev, as well as a particularly fascinating cycle by Eduard Toldrà. Koornhof is sensitively supported by his compatriot, pianist Bernarda Vorster; together they have crafted this beautifully performed programme.

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!
