"Editor's Choice. Another superb chamber partnership (from two brothers), instinctively collaborative in passages of both poignancy and urgency ... a superlative issue in every way."
- Gramophone

"... the Chandos recorded sound is warmly inviting and the Watkins duo interact in a manner perhaps only possible with artists who shared a childhood together, cornflakes and all."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... a serious piece of absolute music that deserves to be much more widely known. Great praise to the brothers for producing such a convincing and enjoyable recital ... this is a typically polished Chandos production; detailed and rich recording in 24-bit at their favoured Potton Hall venue ..."
- MusicWeb International

Cellist Paul Watkins and his pianist brother Huw present the third volume in their survey of British works for cello and piano. On this release the brothers continue to demonstrate a true affinity for this repertoire; Gramophone remarking that "(they) have all this music in their very being." This third volume concentrates on three works written in a short period immediately after the Second World War by three composers of very different orientation and personality.

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!
