The compositions of Johann Sebastian Bach and those of Paul Hindemith are highly complementary and make natural bedfellows on a recording. Simply and sincerely yet boldly and freely, the Duo Azar has juxtaposed transcriptions of two sonatas for flute and harpsichord by Bach with sonatas for oboe and piano and for horn (or saxophone) and piano and the rare Trio by Hindemith – for whom Bach was a source of inspiration. Without for a moment rejecting the original instrumentation, Wenjiao Wang and Carl-Emmanuel Fisbach are convinced that their modern instruments can often work marvellously well in Bach's music. In the present recording, Wenjiao Wang does not hesitate to play with a full and generous sound, while Carl-Emmanuel Fisbach surprises us with his soprano saxophone, producing timbres resembling those of an oboe or a flute. Between them, they aim for a style that is cohesive, expressive, fluid and precise. As a prestigious guest, Pierre Lenert, Viola Soloist of the Paris National Opera Orchestra, joins the Duo in Hindemith's monumental Trio, pushing the expressive limits of his instrument to remarkable extremes.

Les partitions de Jean-Sébastien Bach et de Paul Hindemith s'éclairent l'une l'autre et s'associent naturellement à l'enregistrement. En toute simplicité, en toute sincérité et avec tout autant d'audace et de liberté, le Duo Azar offre les transcriptions de deux Sonates pour flûte et clavecin de Bach, les Sonates pour hautbois et piano et cor (ou saxophone) et piano et le rare Trio d'Hindemith — dont Bach fut une profonde source d'inspiration. Sans renier les instrumentations originales, Wenjiao Wang et Carl-Emmanuel Fisbach sont convaincus qu'il y a des incursions tout à fait souhaitables de leurs instruments dans l'œuvre de Jean-Sébastien Bach. Dans cet enregistrement, Wenjiao Wang donne au clavier une sonorité ample et généreuse. Carl- Emmanuel Fisbach trouble l'oreille avec son saxophone soprano, faisant entendre des timbres de hautbois ou de flûte. Cohésion, expressivité, fluidité et précision de jeu singularisent le Duo Azar. En prestigieux invité, Pierre Lenert, Premier alto solo de l'Orchestre de l'Opéra National de Paris, rejoint l'ensemble sur le monumental Trio d'Hindemith, repoussant admirablement les limites expressives de son instrument.

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!
