"Five Stars ... Kremer and his associates deliver incisive, committed performances ... a fascinating piece, performed here with great brilliance."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... stunning ... the sound quality is generally first class, cool, clear and splendidly balanced ... this is a special release imperiously played here with assured artistry. Undoubtedly one the finest Weinberg recordings available."
- MusicWeb International

"Editor's Choice ... I can’t recommend (this issue) too highly. Kremer brings not just his unmistakable wiry sound quality to bear but also a sheer force of musical personality that brings the music off the page in a way that only the greatest Weinberg recordings do ... this is Weinberg at his most exploratory, even experimental... a performance of unwavering focus, huge range of colour and consummate individual and corporate agility ..."
- Gramophone

Thanks to albums like this, the music of Mieczysław Weinberg is finally beginning to get the attention it has long deserved. Weinberg’s lifetime spanned the 20th century: he died in 1996 in Moscow in semi-obscurity. Along the way, his allies and supporters included Dmitri Shostakovich, who considered him one of the great composers of the age. This live double album from the Kremerata Baltica, ranging from chamber music to strikingly-contrasting compositions for string orchestra, was recorded in Neuhardenberg and Lockenhaus and makes a good case for Shostakovich's claim. Violin soloist Gidon Kremer is exemplary on the Violin Sonata No. 3 which opens the programme.

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!
