"... thoughtfully connects Muhly's music to that of Glass, his great influence and early mentor ... an unalloyed musical delight, one of Muhly's warmest, most charming and most neatly executed ... (these relatively early Glass works) have never sounded like this ... (the) Chuns have, with this album, created and put forward a veritable jewel box of new two violin repertoire."
- WQXR-FM

This recital of music, especially written or arranged for sister violin duo Angela and Jennifer Chun, highlights the personal and professional connections between Philip Glass and Nico Muhly, a longtime colleague and admirer of Glass’s work. Within a year of first discovering Glass's Music in Twelve Parts as a college freshman, Muhly was working at Glass’s studio as a copyist, editor and sequencer for film scores. Here Glass is presented not as the author of mammoth pieces but as a miniaturist; a role shared with Muhly, who rarely writes in epic mode. The programme also includes the premiere recording of Muhly's Four Studies with the composer himself on keyboards.

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!
