"... simply the finest Mertz I’ve ever heard ... this is tastefully played, often with heartrending beauty ... a recording with great artistry."
- American Record Guide

Johann Kaspar Mertz’s duets are unusual for combining a guitar of normal string length and tuning with the smaller Terz guitar and its higher tuning. The rare chemistry of the two instruments played here by Johannes Möller and Laura Fraticelli reaches high degrees of virtuosity in The Rage but it is Mertz’s colourful depiction of scenes and moods which commands attention. The three elegiac Funeral Laments are amongst Mertz’s finest and most expressive pieces.
192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 5.6448, 2.8224 MHz DSD – 2xHD Studio Masters

In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DSD 5.6mHz using the Merging Horus/Hapi In and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.

Each format (96kHz, 192kHz, DSD2.8mHz and DSD5.6mHz) was created using Merging Horus/Hapi A/D converter, calibrated to the required format, and a dCS Vivaldi clock

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!
