"Four Stars ... Thedéen and Pöntinen give an engagingly purposeful account (of the Chopin), in which straightforwardness and avoidance of sentimentality often impress the most ... a finely judged and equitable partnership ... the Schumann pieces are nicely done, too."
- BBC Music Magazine

Two leading Swedish musicians join forces on this programme featuring works by Chopin and Schumann. Multiple award-winning cellist Torleif Thedéen and his duo partner, pianist Roland Pöntinen, share a common musical vision which is very much in evidence on the album, recorded in 2001.

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!
