"ChromaDuo is simply exquisite. This is some of the most purely beautiful playing I've heard in a while."
- American Record Guide

This is the second album of guitar duos from Toronto-based contemporary classical ensemble ChromaDuo, consisting of Tracy Anne Smith and Rob MacDonald. The two present, for the first time, an entire programme of works by Debussy and Ravel, the greatest exponents of Impressionism in music, transcribed for two guitars. The arrangements bring new life to the rich canvas of sonorities and complex harmonies in these popular works: the reflective atmosphere in Debussy’s famous Clair de lune and special upper harmonic effects in La plus que lente contrast with the "merry romp" of the Golliwog’s Cakewalk and Ravel’s nod to Schubert in the Valses nobles et sentimentales.

"I hope you all love it when it comes out ... Norbert Kraft is a recording genius and working with these gorgeous pieces was such a treat. I'm thrilled that a project of four years is finally coming to fruition!"

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!
