"A strong contender for classical CD of the year ... featuring the extraordinary violist Kim Kashkashian ... stunningly beautiful and profoundly moving ... resplendent ..."
- Los Angeles Times

"Five Stars ... the pièce de résistance is Betty Olivero's powerful and densely-worked Neharót Neharót ... it has the resonance of a major work ... its denouement is a brilliant rumination ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

Armenian American violist Kim Kashkashian presents this carefully composed programme exploring the fascinating connections between three contemporary composers from Israel and Armenia. With five pieces respectively based on traditional laments of the Near East, Armenian chant and Hasidic melody, the focus is on vocal expressiveness.

"... (Kashkashian) manages to cry the prayer from within the strings, to murmur the sacred text with no words ..."
- Eitan Steinberg

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!
