On this album, Swedish guitarist Georg Gulyás presents all of Benjamin Britten's works in which the guitar is included, performed together with German mezzo-soprano Ivonne Fuchs. The programme wraps up with a solo piece, the Nocturnal Op. 70, one of the most important works in the guitar repertoire. Based on John Dowland’s Come Heavy Sleep, the piece reflects the various stages of insomnia and hints at how sleep or death finally enters as a liberator.

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!
