- MusicWeb International

Four superb German musicians come together on this highly-acclaimed programme of Poulenc's chamber music, recorded in Germany in 2014 and 2015. Poulenc’s violin and flute sonatas and his Sonata for Two Pianos are some of the most popular chamber works of the 20th century, interpreted here with sensitivity by pianists Alexander Wienand and Eva-Maria May, flutist Henrik Wiese and violinist Kolja Lessing and delivered in audiophile quality sound.

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!
