Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    63:32
Two virtuoso French pianists team up on this programme of transcriptions of orchestral works by Debussy, Stravinsky and Bartók. Jean-Efflam Bavouzet and François-Frédéric Guy breathe new life into these three great orchestral works, each of which was premiered in 1913. Bavouzet’s own transcription of Debussy's Jeux is, like any fine transcription, far more than a memento of the original. The interplay between the pianists, the lines and motifs bouncing between them become active participants in this intimate music.

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!
