Cellist Gabriel Schwabe and pianist Nicholas Rimmer come together on this album featuring one of Brahms's most popular chamber works, his Cello Sonata, Op. 38. Also the programme is the <>Cello Sonata, Op. 99, suffused with lyricism and expressive ardour. More sober and succinct than the earlier sonata, it is strikingly original not least for the wide range required of the cellist to reach unusually high notes from the very low register. In between the two sonatas are the idiomatic and sensitively arranged Six Lieder, transcribed for cello and piano and chosen to suit the cello’s particular colour and articulation. Schwabe and Rimmer stay as close as possible to the originals on their transcriptions, heard here in world premiere recordings.

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!
