Composed near the end of Brahms’s life, the pair of sonatas Op. 120, No. 1 in F Minor and No. 2 in E-flat, were the last chamber pieces he wrote and are considered two of the great masterpieces in the clarinet repertoire; the composer also adapted the clarinet part for the viola, making use of the instrument’s lower register. On this album, pianist Richard Goode and violist Michael Tree bring these two works to life, leading the New York Times to find “much to admire in the lavish tone and eloquent shaping of lines” in the performance.

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!
