In Times of Torment by late composer Yves Ramette displays major themes from almost every single musical era. Composed in Paris during the Nazi occupation, the music presents a unique perspective from Ramette, breaking away from challenging piano works to showcase varying chamber ensembles. Although his sonatas were written for the virtuosic violin and cello, the piano is highlighted throughout his pieces, making it more than an accompaniment, but rather a featured instrument. While Ramette’s favourite instrument was the piano, he also studied the violin in France and his vast knowledge of violin technique can be heard on this album in both of his violin sonatas and his string quartet. Concluding the programme is the Cello Sonata, performed here by cellist Carmine Miranda and pianist Karolina Rojahn.

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!
