Violinist Yuriy Bekker is joined by renowned pianist Andrew Armstrong on some of the most beautiful and rarely-performed works of the 20th century by Jewish composers Erich Korngold and Aaron Copland. Through the palpable interplay of the piano and violin, it is obvious that Bekker and Armstrong are compatible chamber partners as they combine forces and feed off each other musically. Bekker breathes new life into the seldom heard but beautiful aria transcriptions from Korngold’s opera Die tote Stadt, banned by the Nazi regime due to Korngold’s Jewish heritage. Bekker plays a rare 1686 Ex-Nachez Stradivarius violin on this recording, an instrument he says has magical qualities particularly highlighted by these pieces.

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!
