“The International Contemporary Ensemble’s ideal performances of the second (“Stones,” 2003), fourth (“Wounds/Mistletoe,” 2013), and fifth “Wintersongs” — interspersed with another work, the fragmentary “Five action sketches” (2014) — under the conductor Steven Schick, and with the brilliantly agile singers Kai Wessel and Jeffrey Gavett, left me eager to grapple with the complete set… this daunting, primal music draws you into its own world, suggesting it holds secrets despite its teeming chaos, secrets you fear will reveal themselves only on another listen.”
- The New York Times

Chaya Chernowin: Wintersongs presents the Israeli composer’s etherial and unnerving Wintersong V, IV and II and her 5 Action Sketches, as performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble, one of the foremost new-music groups in the US today.

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!
