"Speeds are sedate, dynamics carefully regulated [in the First Sonata]; but we miss any savagery or turbulence…The mighty Second Sonata inspires a riskier approach, both trading the clean-cut for a more craggy monumentalism…The surprise highlight, though, are the six Hungarian Dances: aflame with character and devil-may-care virtuosity, this is Queyras at his most inspired." - BBC Music Magazine "The recording pushes the piano to the back of the sound stage ... [allowing] us to savour the cellist’s soft-grained tone and expressive attention to detail. The duo’s arrangement of six of Brahms’s Hungarian Dances – played with elegantly plonked dollops of schmaltz and a joyous revelling in virtuoso display – makes this disc pretty much irresistible." - Gramophone UK Pianist Alexandre Tharaud and cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras are long-established as a duo team, but this is the first time that Queyras has joined Tharaud for an Erato recording. They have chosen works that lie at the heart of the Romantic repertoire, all by Brahms: his two cello sonatas and the duo’s own transcriptions of six of the "Hungarian Dances".

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!
