On his sophomore album, award-winning young American pianist Andrew Tyson connects two composers whose language seems to divide them but who nevertheless have much in common, notably their use of tonality, of certain unusual harmonies and of dissonance. Showcasing Tyson's talents, the programme includes two sonatas and a waltz by Alexander Scriabin coupled with Ravel’s Miroirs. The two composers lived in the same city at the same time without ever meeting: Debussy, Ravel and the French musical elite of the period regarded their Russian colleagues as crude and uneducated. Even if their approach to the piano and to writing could hardly be more different, these pieces make it apparent that they use tone colours in the same way.

"Ravel is an elegant perfectionist, whose every detail is calculated and glitters like crystal; Scriabin is like a flickering flame: passionate, reckless, spontaneous and erotic."
- Andrew Tyson

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!
