For her third ECM album, Israeli pianist Anat Fort augments her long-established trio of bassist Gary Wang and drummer Roland Schneider with a special guest, Italian reedman Gianluigi Trovesi. Fort and Trovesi have made a number of appearances together in recent years and Birdwatching, with its alert sense of joy in the playing and lively bright music, takes their rapport to the next level. Quartet music is interspersed with improvised solo piano as the story unfolds in a series of vignettes.

"Many of my songs are inspired by movements of things in nature: animals, clouds, winds, water ... I didn’t know what this record would be called but when I listened to the finished master I knew it had to do with the movement of birds and with watching, listening, waiting. It is as much about birdwatching outside as about watching that inner bird, the soul."

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!
