"... gorgeous sonics, first-class musicianship and substantial compositions that deserve wider recognition: these are ingredients that add up to an unqualified 'must-have' recommendation."
- ClassicsToday.com

"Hearing Nobuko Imai, one regrets that the viola has never become a familiar recital instrument alongside the violin and cello: she’s the equal of any string player, yet presents the viola as a unique instrumental voice ... Imai’s stature is revealed in her beautifully exact double stopping, perfect rhythmic poise and the way she searches out and presents the true character of each piece. Great viola playing!"
- Gramophone

Violist Nobuko Imai shines on solo pieces and is wonderfully accompanied by pianist Ronald Brautigam on this recital album of works by Reger, originally released in 2003.

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!
