"... three superstar virtuosos succeed in merging without submerging their over-life-size personalities ... the playing is spectacular. Repin's tone, with its vibrant, expressive intensity and incredible purity, is uniquely beautiful; Lang Lang's, whether delicate or powerful, is consistently singing ... in both works, their ensemble is impeccable ... this is a truly special, thrilling recording."
- Stereophile

"... these collaborations cast contemporary classical music superstars Vadim Repin and Lang Lang into a new light ... (Mischa Maisky) brings a magisterial authority to the Russian repertory he champions ... the fact that each of the three principals exerts a concertante voice of his own brings the sonic lustre of the piece to an often symphonic pitch, abetted by Repin's and Maisky's plaintive tone, intertwined with a strong but subdued expressivity from Lang Lang ... sumptuously recorded ..."
- Audiophile Audition

"A celebrity trio that is much more than the sum of its parts ... what impresses most of all about these performances is their single-mindedness. Nowhere is there even a suggestion of conflicting temperaments with their own agenda. What shines through here is the give and take, the kinship, of outstanding chamber music playing ... (on the Tchaikovsky) all three players display a palpable sense of empathy, as in knowing at any given moment what their leading or supporting role is. The theme and variations of the second movement display a fantastic range of character."
- Gramophone

Three superstars of their respective instruments come together for the first time on this 2009 recording of beautiful and emotional trios by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov. The three musicians from around the world represent three generations: Chinese pianist Lang Lang is 27, Russian violinist Vadim Repin is 38 and Latvian cellist Mischa Maisky is 61, yet the musical unity they demonstrate on this album bridges all gaps.

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!
