Young award-winning pianist Artem Yasynskyy presents his debut album, recorded as part of the Hofmann Prize he won at the inaugural German Piano Competition of Polish Music in Hamburg in 2013. Józef Kazimierz Hofmann was one of the greatest Romantic figures of his age, a towering technician and a poet of the keyboard who wrote extensively for the piano.

"This is my first recording and working towards it has been a source of enormous gratification to me. Hofmann, who probably knew the piano better than anybody else, wrote magnificently for the instrument. His piano works are a thrilling mixture of styles, marking the composer’s personal and musical development. While largely confining himself to classical structures, Hofmann’s music nevertheless always comes directly from the heart. He explores the huge possibilities for sonority to the fullest and develops a palette unique to himself."

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!
