This is the second installment of an ambitious project of enormous musical and historic importance: to record works on many of the world's most valuable, historic and revered instruments. The album is a trip back in time to the early years of the 20th century, on which Grammy nominated violinist Peter Sheppard Skærved recreates a typical Ole Bull salon concert, through which the Norwegian violinist earned fame around Europe and the US. Sheppard Skærved is accompanied on several pieces by Roderick Chadwick at the piano.This series is supported by the Royal Academy of Music in London, the Library of Congress in Washington DC and several other cultural institutions and private collectors, whose assistance in providing recording facilities and in allowing access to these wonderful instruments made this undertaking possible.

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!
