"I can say only good things about the sound. It is impeccable, with a stable image, and all it takes to please the most demanding audiophile."
- Ultra High Fidelity

“Best Recording of the Month. A stunning demonstration of technique at the service of profoundly musical ends..."
- Stereo Review

“The pianistic hurdles leaped with incredible fleetness and lightness, punctuated by volcanic outbursts of power and majesty. It was the sort of impossible thing rendered possible only by genius. Repeat: genius."
- Los Angeles Times

Reclusive pianist virtuoso Minoru Nojima, one of Japan’s most internationally respected musicians, recorded this classic album in 1986. When first released in 1988, Nojima Plays Liszt became a reference work and established Minoru's reputation as a fine interpreter of the music of Liszt. The album had been hard to find for many years until this reissue became available. Nojima, a "pianist's pianist," is not very well known in North America as he records and performs live very infrequently, but has been compared to some of the piano greats, was a silver prize winner of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 1969 and has performed with orchestras around the world.

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!
