Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    67:48
In these works for guitar, George Kontogiorgos explores melodic fragments from the ballades he wrote in his youth and uses them in a classical setting. These pieces are mostly tonal and deeply communicative – Sea Vespers evokes lazy days by the sea, while the dance-like Cansonata is a songful duo for guitar and cello. Kaleidoscope often refers to the musical style of the 1960s and1970s when the guitar was the dominant instrument in pop and rock music, whereas Elegy1980 and Emotions draw out darker and more dramatic musical landscapes. Having worked closely with Kontogiorgos, these performances by Pavlos Kanellakis are both idiomatic and definitive.

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!
