Pianist Alessio Bax performs Scriabin’s Piano Sonata No. 3, Prelude for Left Hand Alone and Etude Op. 2 along with Mussorgsky’s beloved Pictures at an Exhibition and Night on the Bare Mountain, the latter in an original arrangement by the pianist himself. Given that Ravel’s orchestration of Pictures at an Exhibition may be better known than Mussorgsky’s original piano score, Bax sought to develop his own unique interpretation.

"I wanted to go back to the original version (of Pictures at an Exhibition), as if trying to clear my ears of the beautiful colours of the Ravel, and dig out the typically Russian colors that I think are embedded within the piano score. I was fueled by years of studying Russian piano, orchestral and chamber music and by my extensive travels all across Russia."

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!
