On her debut album Masks, Bosnian-American pianist Mirna Lekić focuses on lesser known works inspired by the world of puppets, dolls and Commedia dell'arte characters. The project draws on her doctoral research and reflects her affinity for this touching, beautiful and masterful repertoire, which includes pieces by Debussy, Martinu, Villa-Lobos and Muczynski.

"I was drawn to this repertoire partly by its musical language, a very pianistic one ... veiled messages (are conveyed) through the simultaneous portrayal of joy and tragedy, familiar and exotic, simplicity and profundity ... written by composers who were inspired pedagogically and through personal expatriate experience by the French musical legacy. Pieces selected for this disc are not frequently recorded or performed."

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!
