"Isn’t it nice to know that performances by (Weilerstein) and Barnatan need not live only in one’s memory?"
- The Philadelphia Inquirer

"... (the duo play) with a dazzling technique and a level of communication and expression so clear that they can practically finish each other’s phrases ..."
- Boston Classical Review

"... Chopin’s Sonata for Cello and Piano (is) a work of such fiendish difficulty that even Chopin was convinced that parts of it might be unplayable. Weilerstein and Barnatan put that notion to rest with their poise and passion ..."
- The New York Times

This album of monumental cello sonatas by Chopin and Rachmaninov marks the debut recording from Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan and his longtime exclusive recital partner, cellist Alisa Weilerstein. The two sonatas spotlighted here, explored by the pair in concert for years, are also accompanied by shorter works by each composer.

"Playing in a duo context with Inon is rewarding because we think in similar terms, we have a unique connection. We respond to each other in an instinctive way, without having to talk about it."
- Alisa Weilerstein

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!
