"The piano is captured in clear, dynamic sound and the recording benefits from the fine acoustics ... I really enjoyed this and I think you will, too ... Bax and Chung are without a doubt one of the finest piano duos out there."
- MusicWeb International

The real life marriage of two great concert pianists, Alessio Bax and Lucille Chung, has led to one of the leading piano duos of their generation. This album of music for piano four-hands is the couple's debut release. Stavinsky’s Pétrouchka was originally arranged for four-hands by the composer as a rehearsal score, but this stripped-down version brings all the melodic, rhythmic and harmonic inventiveness to the fore. Brahms’s 16 Waltzes are an enchanting collection of Romantic miniatures that nod to the musical lineage of the composer’s home in Vienna. The final four tangos by Piazzolla are full of Argentine flair and vigour and were arranged especially for this recording by Bax and Chung.

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!
