"... a delectable way into Fauré’s chamber music ... there’s warmth aplenty coupled with an ease with its technical demands and a wonderful conversational quality."
- Gramophone

"... the Kungsbacka Piano Trio holds its own, with performances that are full-toned, liquid, lissome and emotionally engaged ... playing (is) exquisitely poignant ... resoundingly recommended."
- Fanfare

"Sound quality is crystal clear and well balanced throughout. Whether you are looking to discover Fauré’s chamber music for the first time or are looking for new, dynamic and well-engineered performances to add to your collection, this album is definitely worth your consideration."
- MusicWeb International

Violist Philip Dukes joins the Kungsbacka Piano Trio on this critically-praised recording of Gabriel Fauré’s popular chamber works, which bridges a gap between the romanticism of the 19th century and the new worlds of music which appeared in the 20th. Fauré used subtle harmonic changes and a gift for melody to combine innovation with an entirely personal idiom, as heard on this programme.

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!
