"... it was extraordinarily pleasing to the ear and the performances were equally pleasurable."
- Fanfare

The German record label Tacet has become known for its no-compromise “Tube Only” nostalgic recording technique, using nothing but tube microphones and amplifiers. This approach adds a naturalness, warmth and vividness to an already remarkable performance of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons.

"... nowadays, musicians strive not only to convey the beauty of Vivaldi’s writing but also his dramatic way of accurately indicating each image of the season being depicted. The Tacet recording certainly succeeds in that respect. Violinist Daniel Gaede, conductor Wojciech Rajski, and the musicians of the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra fully realize the composer’s stated intentions. When they play the opening of La Primavera (Spring), I feel lighthearted and optimistic; when they play the opening of L’Inverno (Winter), I shiver with cold."

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!
