Three major masterpieces—sonatas for cello and piano by renowned French composers—make up this passionate, turbulent, tender, exuberant, and optimistic album.

Debussy’s forward-looking sonata is one of the best examples of the master’s late style. The transcription of Franck’s violin sonata for cello will make you wonder if the piece wasn’t originally planned for cello and piano (there is some evidence that it was). And Chopin’s sonata represents a rare foray into chamber music by everyone’s favorite composer of piano music. For good measure, Ravel’s short Cuban dance piece is included.

Cellist Dmitry Kouzov and pianist Peter Laul deliver breathtaking interpretations of these towering masterpieces.

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!
