"Berger has a warm, resonant baritone and an hour spent in its company is a pleasurable experience ... the partnership between Berger and Iain Burnside yields some fine performances." - Gramophone "This is a fine recital, which I enjoyed very much. Careful thought has gone into the programme building and the execution of the programme is consistently excellent. The recorded sound is up to Delphian’s usual high standards ... more please!" - MusicWeb International "Four Stars ... (Berger's) tone is beautiful, his technique immaculate. He does extraordinary things with breath control ... his sense of line is exceptional. None of the tracks disappoint ... pianist Iain Burnside is wonderfully responsive to his shifts in mood and style. An idiosyncratic disc, but very fine." - The Guardian For his solo recording debut, baritone William Berger devised this ingenious sequence of 17 songs describing a sleepless night experienced by a man who reflects on his love for an unnamed woman. From Viennese classicism to fin-de-siècle Romanticism, shadowy English pastoral to the contemporary worlds of Richard Rodney Bennett and Raymond Yiu, this wide-ranging programme is brought to nuanced life by the outstanding young singer, while the indefatigable Iain Burnside provides lucid and imaginative accompaniment. Together, their performances capture the full gamut of nocturnal emotions.

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!
