With A Gentle Notion, the Hanick Hawley Duo celebrates the past half-century of American music for clarinet and piano. A radio-friendly collection that marks their duo album debut, the new recording presents clarinetist Richie Hawley and pianist Conor Hanick in the clarinet sonatas of Aaron Copland, Jennifer Higdon and Pierre Jalbert, together with – Wings – Joan Tower's tour-de-force for solo clarinet – and the title track, an evocative Higdon miniature. Both this short piece and Jalbert's sonata, which was commissioned and written for the duo, are heard here in world premiere recordings. Due for release by Il Pirata Records on April 30, A Gentle Notion was produced by Hawley himself, owner of the label, who used innovative recording and mixing techniques to capture the resonance, texture and immediacy of an authentic onstage experience.

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!
