Zoltán Kodály’s later years were dominated by a series of choral works but his early reputation centred upon chamber music, notably two string quartets, a "Cello Sonata" and the two masterpieces heard on this recording. The "Duo for Violin and Cello, Op. 7" combines Classical form with folk influence, while the "Sonata for Solo Cello, Op. 8", with its expanded harmonies and tone colours, is one of the greatest solo cello works since Bach’s "Cello Suites". György Ligeti continued the Hungarian lineage with his "Sonata for Solo Cello", a succinct but pivotal work in his compositional development.

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!
