"What impresses in the playing of all the musicians on this superb disc is the absence of any struggle between piano and strings; it is not a case of the piano playing against the three string players. The sheer enjoyment manifest marks it out as chamber music played at its highest level."
- MusicWeb International

Gabriel Fauré’s chamber works, long overshadowed by his popular Requiem, are regaining their rightful place. This 2014 release is the second recording of Fauré's works by the Kungsbacka Piano Trio of Sweden. The programme features the less frequently heard original version, with clarinet, of the Piano Trio, the Second Piano Quartet, which includes an evocation of the bells of Cadirac near the composer’s home, Romances sans paroles, described by Marcel Proust as "intoxicating" and one of Fauré’s most famous works, the Berceuse from the Dolly Suite.

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!
