Cellist Robin Michael and pianist Daniel Tong present this fascinating recording of the two sonatas for cello and piano by Brahms along with Robert Schumann's distinctive Fünf Stücke im Volkston. Taking a historically informed approach, the unique performance of these mainstays of the repertoire provides a captivating insight into the chamber music sound world of the late 19th century. In their quest for authenticity, Michael plays a cello with gut strings, while Tong is heard on an 1897 Blüthner boudoir grand piano (pictured on the cover) thought to have been selected by Brahms himself from the maker's factory.

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!
