"Four Stars ... a very esoteric and somewhat transcendental-sounding collection of three works by a new talented ensemble ... this very interesting first release certainly makes me curious about what lies ahead ... I enjoyed these three and I certainly enjoy the performances. I think to most listeners, the Debussy will, of course, seem the most accessible ... I look forward to more recordings from Tre Voci and the always splendid ECM studios."
- Audiophile Audition

Grammy-winning violist Kim Kashkashian introduces her new trio on Tre Voci, comprising Italian-American flutist Marina Piccinini and Israeli harpist Sivan Magen; all three musicians have been acknowledged for bringing new voices to their instruments. Kashkashian, Piccinini and Magen first played together at the 2010 Marlboro Music Festival and agreed that their potential was too great to limit it to a single season. Since then they have been developing their repertoire, which on this album revolves around Debussy’s Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp and its influence, most directly felt in Takemitsu’s shimmering And Then I Knew 't Was Wind and indeed in the music of Sofia Gubaidulina.

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!
