"Two outstanding artists ... a really interesting recital ... very nicely played ... features a good selection of music."
- Classic FM

"Four Stars ... their quixotic musical personalities do match; there's a lightness of touch and an element of spontaneity in Gabetta's playing that corresponds to the impulsive aspects of Grimaud's pianism and their performances ... revel in that quicksilver agility ... giving the music a buoyancy that seems very fresh."
- The Guardian

"... Grimaud produces a context of almost orchestral depth and spaciousness into which Gabetta projects her eloquently refined lines ... Debussy's riveting Sonata benefits from Grimaud's subtle palette of timbres and the cellist's willingness to let her sound ring free ... (for the Shostakovich) Gabetta finds her vicious streak, with thrilling results in the finale."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... Gabetta has always had a singular ability to make the cello sing in an oddly delicate and feminine way ... combined with Hélène Grimaud's image as the beautiful punk rocker of classical music, this disc has the potential to be something really unique. There is a lightness to all the performances that creates an engagingly lyrical sound that is pleasurable to listen to ... (on the Brahms) the delicacy of the playing is put to greatest use: the elegance of the Bachian fugues in the outer movements of the Brahms brings out the clarity of the lines and, as a result, the composer's own skill as a technician."
- Gramophone

Pianist Hélène Grimaud and cellist Sol Gabetta deliver pure passion, inspiration and musical harmony on Duo, their 2012 collaborative recording that recreates the wildly-acclaimed live recital programme of works by Brahms, Debussy, Schumann and Shostakovich they performed at the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad in the summer of 2011.

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!
