In their first album as a duo, Louis Rodde and Gwendal Giguelay unveil their preferred repertoire. These three sonatas are representative of a certain time and era, a "musical will and testament" made up of works from the end of Fauré's life and from Ropartz's mature composition period (by chance, the latter's sonata, his second, was written in the time between the elder's two). The music is lyricism incarnate, filled with mysteries of the divine and far away in Fauré's case and tinged with echoes of Celtic folk heritage in Ropartz's – this album invites us to dream.

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!
