"... a recital of stark but warm yet haunting clarity, it's impossible to categorize ... improvisation is clearly a part of her bigger picture ... an overall eccentric yet thoroughly compelling performance that possesses its own dramaturgy, even as it dispels myths of convention ... curious and quirky ... one which reaps the continued rewards of repeat plays." - All About Jazz On her 2013 debut solo recording, Czech singer, musician and composer Iva Bittová explores the relationship between the violin and her own voice. The numbered pieces here, modestly titled Fragments, resist definition: idiosyncratic folk music, contemporary composition, improvisation, any and all of these may apply from moment to moment. "The violin is a mirror reflecting my dreams and imagination. I believe there are fundamentals to my performance, such as the music’s vibration and resonance between violin and my voice." - Iva Bittová

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!
