Greek guitar virtuoso and composer Smaro Gregoriadou continues her unique and pioneering applied research into different instrument designs, tunings and performance techniques, historic and modern. Her previous two-album series Reinventing Guitar was acclaimed by reviewers the world over and expanded performing and stylistic horizons for guitarists. While those previous releases concentrated largely on Baroque-era music, this one sticks to music of particular appeal from the past century, as well as forays into the new millennium, presented on a number of different guitars that Gregoriadou helped develop. Most of these pieces are for solo guitar, but the programme does include the world premiere of her own arresting composition, the title work El Aleph for guitar ensemble, played here by the German group Open Source Guitars.

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!
