"These performances are stupendous ... there’s no need to say more: just get these discs."
- ClassicsToday.com

"... Helmchen has a noble bearing and a noble sound, shaping lines as elegant and clean as a Greek temple’s."
- The New York Times

These performances, charmingly recorded in a warm acoustic space, create perfectly balanced conversations between two vibrant young personalities. Julia Fischer and Martin Helmchen skilfully reveal what can be achieved when Schubert's violin and piano duos are given the right treatment: wonderful music, expertly performed. This double album uniquely features violinist Fischer on piano in the four-hand piece Fantasia for Piano Duet. She had previously performed as a pianist in concert, but this marks her recording debut.

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!
