Modes is the 30th edition of the celebrated Society of Composers, Inc. series, containing a diverse array of compositions with influences from around the world and experiences that are fresh and thrillingly avant-garde. The album’s contributions span the globe, showcasing exciting musical elements ranging from an ancient Chinese zither-like instrument to the Persian santour. Nolan Stolz’s Princess Ka‘iulani calls on the soloist to sing, speak and whisper fragments of Hawaiian words and phrases into a flute, while Arthur Gottschalk’s song cycle for soprano and string quartet, Five Songs of Love, features poems from diverse sources including Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. The works presented here vividly display each composer's unique blend of understanding, ingenuity and craft.

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!
