This release sees Mariko and Volker Eckerle of the Eckerle Piano Duo perform arrangements of works by Schumann for two pianos, the fourth instalment in their ongoing series. Playing arrangements of orchestral and operatic works on domestic pianos was an important part of 19th-century musical life and therefore a key line of revenue for composers, one that Schumann dived into enthusiastically. He arranged his own Symphony No. 2 in C Major for two pianos in collaboration with Clara Schumann in this way, and entrusted arrangements of the overtures Genoveva and Julius Caeser to his friend Robert Pfretzschner and brother-in-law Woldemar Bargiel, all of which are included here along with an anonymous arrangement of the Konzertstück for 4 Horns & Orchestra.

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!
