Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    2:12:01
Italian pianist Sandro Ivo Bartoli pays tribute to one of his fellow countrymen, Ferruccio Busoni, who revolutionized piano transcription and brought it into the modern era. Bartoli spotlights what Busoni called the comparable virtues of “rhythmic precision and greater impetuosity” which he attributed to the piano, from the delightful Prelude & Fugue in D Major to the grandiose and virtuosic Two Toccatas, which Busoni placed at the very top of his scale of difficulty for the transcriptions. The moods on this double album range from soaring, majestic pieces that aim straight at the heavens to poignant moments of the most sublime intimacy.

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!
