"Four Stars ... typically well-constructed and enticing ..." - BBC Music Magazine "... a passionate, full-blooded performance of the Lekeu sonata, taking on board the 22-year-old composer’s lofty tone and high ambitions ... aided by a fine, generous recording ..." - Gramophone "... must surely be counted among the finest, heading a highly original programme. The emotion of the work is evident from the first phrase, beautifully poised between expansiveness and forward motion as played by Little. It is captured in gloriously full sound ... all three works here are the product of youth, but nevertheless show complete mastery of the material ..." - International Record Review Tasmin Little explores three great French violin sonatas on this recording accompanied by pianist Martin Roscoe, her longstanding chamber music partner. They immerse themselves in the music of three of the best late 19th century French composers: Guillaume Lekeu, Maurice Ravel and Gabriel Fauré, whose Violin Sonata No. 1 in A Major has become a reference in the romantic repertoire.

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!
