"It’s beautiful playing, tonally and expressively and very musical, but it’s also surprisingly open ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Disc of the Month ... a breathtaking balance of poise and daring ... Tetzlaff and Vogt take obvious pleasure in details without losing sight of the larger picture, whether it’s a phrase, a movement or an entire work. Indeed, they sharply delineate the individual character of each sonata."
- Gramophone

"Four Stars ... each work has a questing lyricism, vividly captured here. Christian Tetzlaff’s distinctive, quicksilver playing, capable of extreme pianissimo, suits the intensity and introspection in each ... the performances are agile, airborne, refreshingly unpredictable and alive with exhilarating freedom."
- The Guardian

Award-winning violinist Christian Tetzlaff and pianist Lars Vogt continue their successful series of violin chamber music with this exciting programme of Brahms's sonatas, considered among the greatest masterpieces of the 19th century chamber repertoire. Brahms wrote these powerful works at the height of his creative powers, bringing the genre of violin sonatas into a new dimension.
5.6448 MHz, 2.8224 MHz DSD and 192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – 2xHD - Ondine Studio Masters

96 kHz / 24-bit PCM, mastered in 192 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 5.6448 MHz, 2.8224 MHz DSD

In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original 24bits/96kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DSD 5.6 MHz using Merging Horus/Hapi In and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.

Each format (96kHz, 192kHz, DSD 2.8 MHz, DSD 5.6 MHz) was created using Merging Horus/Hapi A/D converter, calibrated to the required format and a dCS Vivaldi clock.

2xHD mastering: René Laflamme and André Perry

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!
