Recorded when he was only 22, this album showcases the reasons Yan Levionnois is regarded as one of the greatest cello players of his generation. Beside the masterpieces of Bach, very few other composers' cello works have been recorded. As such, Levionnois focuses on pieces here by Jacques Ibert, Sergei Prokofiev, George Crumb and Benjamin Britten, among others. Levionnois is very interested in contemporary music and chose to include great works from the 20th and 21st centuries on this 2013 project which aptly reflects his personality; a messenger from the past century willing to discover new horizons.

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!
