"... remarkable artistry. That they speak the same language, musically as well as verbally, is fully manifest in the intimate, conversational nature of the playing, the way in which ideas are shared and shaped instinctively ..."
- The Daily Telegraph

"... such technical perfection could hardly have been created with day upon day and take upon take in the studio, at the same time as retaining and transferring the intimacy of a live performance on disc ..."
- Gramophone

This recital, recorded live in 2012 in the superb acoustics of London's Wigmore Hall, is essential for chamber music connoisseurs. Maria João Pires is partnered with Antonio Meneses, cellist with the Beaux Arts Trio. The album features a collection of standard works from the repertoire, including the Songs without Words by Mendelssohn, Cello Sonata Op. 38 by Brahms, and the eternal Arpeggione sonata by Schubert.

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!
