"Five Stars ... Berteau, undeservedly forgotten, is revealed as wonderfully tuneful, harmonically logical and rhythmically light-footed in sonatas and airs. An unqualified delight." - BBC Music Magazine "Coin's intimately conversational playing seems to convey perceptive subtleties effortlessly ... Coin also plays with a staggering range and dexterity of bowing ... this is a veritable masterclass." - Gramophone "I have nothing but praise for Christophe Coin’s playing ... he gets a beautiful dark tone out of his unnamed instrument, but is also capable of great agility ... there is no strain in his playing, but plenty of suave, flexible phrasing that points to a musician who doesn’t have to worry about the devilish passages under their fingers. Coin utilizes dynamics persuasively and ornaments with care. Above all, he takes stage. These are the opposite of overstudied readings, full of life and immensely enjoyable. In short, recommendable to cellists, cello lovers, fanciers of the galant and people who just enjoy a good tune." - Fanfare Cellist Christophe Coin is joined by Markus Hünninger at the harpsichord on this recording of works by one of the founding fathers of modern cello, active in the mid-18th century, Martin Berteau. Known both for training many of the important cellists from later in that century and for introducing technical innovations which extended the instrument’s range and expressiveness, Berteau’s composing voice has been very little known. In fact some of his pieces have been confused with those by others. Coin and two of his own former cello students, Petr Skalka and Felix Knecht, all appear on one sonata, playing instruments from the epoch.

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!
