On Wunderkammer, acclaimed early music ensemble ACRONYM presents 10 modern premiere sonatas from 17th century Germany. The title comes from the "cabinet of curiosities" often found in the homes of German aristocrats of the era. The group unearthed these never-before recorded sonatas from forgotten composers and, like the Wunderkammer of German aristocracy, the album is full of surprises, curiosities, irregularities and eccentricities.

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!
