Total Playing Time    58:07
With this debut recording, Armenian-American violist Kim Kashkashian introduces a new duo with Russian composer-pianist Lera Auerbach. Their first collaboration showcases Auerbach’s original viola and piano transcription of Shostakovich’s often playful 24 Preludes, alongside Auerbach’s own, darker sonata for viola and piano, Arcanum, composed specifically for Kashkashian.

"Arcanum means ‘mysterious knowledge’ and I was fascinated by the inner voice within each of us, some may call it perhaps intuition, some may call it guided meditation, but there is some knowledge that we have, which we may not necessarily verbalize or rationalize, but that allows us to see the truth, to be guided, to seek answers ... there is a quality of life-or-death intensity to (Kashkashian's) performing, which is rare and wonderful."
- Lera Auerbach

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!
