Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    70:59
"... well up to usual label standards. The vast majority of the pieces in this very varied but expertly arranged recital do indeed justify their billing as masterpieces ... almost totally achieves what it sets out to do and is one which will definitely repay repeated listening ... at least four of the pieces included, those by Tormis, Thompson, Poulenc and Hillborg, in their quite different ways, scale the very highest heights of artistic achievement. Some of the others are not so far behind ... invaluable and pretty much indispensable. Great stuff!"
- MusicWeb International

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!
