"... Abel and Steinberg’s records for Wilson are the best sounding chamber music recordings I’ve ever heard. The hall has been effectively eliminated and the two musicians are there in your listening room, palpably scaled and positioned. Abel has a small but attractive tone and he plays with spot-on intonation and a narrow, even vibrato. The subtlety and control of his playing is matched by his accompanist."
- The Absolute Sound

"Recording of the Month ... oh, what a breath of fresh air this is! An audiophile recording of real music that isn't bombastic, overblown, or high-powered. Imagine, if you can, a private recital in your own home by two consummate artists who play these works for their own delight as much as for yours. Imagine sound so completely and disarmingly natural that after 30 seconds you're unaware it's reproduced. That's what this record is all about."
- Stereophile

This 1984 album of violin sonatas by David Abel and Julie Steinberg received glowing reviews, praised for its sound quality which transports the two musicians directly into the listener's room. The performance is also nothing short of superb: Abel plays one of the great Beethoven sonatas and demonstrates his technical virtuosity on Enescu's Sonata No. 3, accompanied by Steinberg on piano.

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!
