"... Stark and Pescia make a fine job of Busoni's masterly and extremely expansive Second Sonata, a work that's far more grounded in the worlds of Beethoven and Brahms with Bach providing the theme for the variations second movement."
- Gramophone

"... at the top of the list for clear, detailed, if somewhat recessed, sound whose balance gives each artist her/his due and packing a wallop at climactic moments ... separately or together, one looks forward to more by these fresh, vibrant artists. In sum, superb. Highest recommendation."
- Fanfare

Pianist Cédric Pescia is joined by violinist Nurit Stark, making her recording debut, on a pair of sonatas by two truly innovative composers whose music is worthy of rediscovery. For both Busoni and Enescu, their success and popularity as performers proved to be a hindrance to their reputations as composers. Neither utilized a modern system or founded a school of composition, two key elements of interest to posterity. They were great humanist musicians and their works, magnificently singular, incontestably modern, are filled with a rich and vast sense of the past.

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!
