Violinist and violist Charles Wetherbee and pianist David Korevaar join forces on this album of works by Tibor Harsányi, a student of Kodaly in Budapest. A pianist and conductor as well as a composer, Harsányi travelled to France in 1923 where he joined an elite group of expatriates known as "l’école de Paris." The music on this recording presents a survey of Harsányi's stylistic development, from one of his earliest works, the Sonatina, with its essentially Romantic roots, to his final work, the Viola Sonata, notable for its mixture of sensuousness and earthiness that connects it to the earlier compositions. The Violin Sonata reflects currents of modernism in Paris, including American jazz, as well as the music of his compatriot Bartók.

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!
