British pianist Grace Francis presents works by two contemporaneous but very different composers on this release for Quartz Music. Brahms was a representative of the “conservative” style, a tendency which can be heard in the classicism of the Piano Sonata No. 3 in F Minor included here, while Liszt was a key figure of the “New German School”, on full display in the virtuosic Piano Sonata in B Minor and Consolations, works which Francis performs with flair.

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!
