This release presents performances by violinist Edith Volckaert from the finals of the 1971 Queen Elisabeth Competition in Belgium. A musician who went on to become a respected soloist, chamber musician, and teacher, Volckaert here plays Shostakovich's energetic and at times anguished Violin Concerto No. 1 in A Minor and Bartók's lyrical and harmonically inventive Violin Concerto No. 2, performing both of these exceptionally challenging 20th-century virtuosic work with intensity and flair.

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!
