"The recorder playing of Michala Petri is technically flawless and even more importantly, bursting with colour, variety and energy in a way that has certainly inspired me.”
- The Recorder Magazine

Composer Sean Hickey explores the recorder as a witness to the rise and fall of empires, crusades, wars and countless births and deaths as a musical voyeur with his work A Pacifying Weapon, artfully realized here by soloist Michala Petri. This thoughtful and exciting new work invokes the seeming futility of music in the face of tragedy and ultimately finds its ominous tremolos and climatic flourishes as weapons silencing the madness of violence.

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!
