"Piazzolla and Villa-Lobos are afforded the Rolls Royce treatment here ... the star quality of cellist Anne Gastinel and soprano Sandrine Piau give this a definite luxury feel ... (on the Bachianas brasileiras No. 5, Piau) sent shivers up my spine ... the cello accompaniment is exceptional and this may just be the best version I’ve heard. The performance of No. 1 is even better and unquestionably the best I know, with marvellous drive and poetry ... these are benchmark performances of the two Bachianas brasileiras.
- MusicWeb International

On Americas, renowned cellist Anne Gastinel presents works from two giants of Latin American music, Astor Piazzolla and Villa-Lobos, accompanied by the ensemble of cellos of the Orchestre National de France. Together they offer a fresh vision of Piazzolla’s masterpieces, transcribed especially for this project. Soprano Sandrine Piau joins for the concluding work, the aria from Villa-Lobos's Bachianas brasileiras No. 5.

"The programme is a joyful mix of long held feelings and desires that turned, quite spontaneously, into a real project. I love exploring different repertoire, ‘parallel’ worlds ... to go from one universe to another in my work and to alternate between the serious and the not-so-serious ... I also wanted to branch out in my discography, to take my listeners along new and unknown paths. And then, all of a sudden, I decided I really wanted to play with other cellists! The ensemble of cellos is magical: the range of the instrument is so large that it allowed us to create the effect of an orchestra!"

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!
