Though concertos for multiple soloists were rare in the Romantic era, German violinist and composer Louis Spohr placed musical integrity ahead of showmanship and stylistic convention with his Concertos for Two Violins, Nos. 1 and 2, which abound with his signature melodic mastery and delicately poised Classical sensibility. Virtuosic solo passages alternate with congenial dialogue between violinists Henning Kraggerud and Oyvind Bjora, both of whom lend expert interpretations to these enigmatic compositions.

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!
