Udopia, the debut album from Greek oud virtuoso and composer Thimios Atzakas, features a selection of his own compositions and arrangements created over the last several years. His style is strongly influenced by Oriental traditions; when merged with his background in European jazz and contemporary classical music, an intriguing fusion results, a sound world of its own that defies any concrete definitions. The ensemble consists of seven musicians from world, classical and jazz who have played together in this formation for many years, forging a mutual understanding that transcends conventional stylistic boundaries.

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!
