Three British groups are featured on this tribute to American composer Kevin Raftery, who has worked in London since 1989. His music is in the best post modernist tradition of today, partly impressionistic and descriptive, partly abstract, occasionally displaying his individual sense of humour. These selections form a very satisfying programme with varying instrumentation and exceptional performances from three highly regarded ensembles: the Heath Quartet, the Berkeley Ensemble and the Animare Ensemble.

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!
