Brazilian pianist Aleyson Scopel presents the second volume in his exploration of the complete Cartas Celestes ("celestial charts") by prolific Brazilian composer Almeida Prado. The colossal 18 movement cycle of works depicts celestial bodies visible in the Brazilian sky, for which Prado invented his own harmonic language called "transtonality." Dense, rhythmically charged and saturated in the richest colours, these pieces complete the composer’s portrayal of the planets. "... they close a first cycle, painting with sounds the remaining planets from our solar system, including the Earth in all its majesty ... I remain constantly enchanted and intrigued by Prado's sound world ... an innovative, scintillating and spellbinding approach to the instrument, achieving effects not previously thought or heard of." - Aleyson Scopel

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!
