"... in performances of this excellence, insight and clarity, the works on this recording surely deserve to be aired more frequently ..."
- Gramophone

"Four Stars. The Watkins brothers buckle down to their task with notable sympathy and panache ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... there is keen emotional input from both performers ... well-balanced, highly enjoyable and excellently recorded ..."
- ClassicalSource.com

"... the Watkins brothers make a fine partnership clearly relishing this type of repertory. The playing is technically secure with both instruments having an attractive timbre ... sound quality is clear with an excellent balance. Lovers of British chamber music will want to own this release."
- MusicWeb International

In the late 19th and 20th centuries, many British composers produced superb works for cello and piano, but few of these actually made their way into the general repertoire. Here we have four very different works by four very distinct musical personalities, expertly performed by cellist Paul Watkins accompanied by his pianist brother Huw. Out of the four composers featured on this album, only John Foulds was a professional cellist.

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!
