"Antonio Meneses is truly the bel canto hero of the cello world: no matter how virtuosic or gnarly the music, he sings it with a sonorous beauty of tone and uncompromised resonance only achieved by a chosen few."
- BBC Music Magazine

Legendary Brazilian cellist Antonio Meneses is joined by Claudio Cruz and the Royal Northern Sinfonia for this release celebrating his 60th birthday. Featuring three delicious works, Schumann's Cello Concerto in A Minor, Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No. 1 in A Minor, and Tchaikovsky's Variations on a Rococo Theme, Meneses is still at the height of his musical powers, and he is ably accompanied by the players of the Sinfonia.

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!
