“Budu is a stunningly original pianist with musical insight and maturity that could inspire envy in colleagues twice his age. He has the sort of hands that used to be called 'velvet paws', which are seemingly incapable of making an ugly sound at the instrument...Eloquent phrasing is ever front and centre, and no expressive potential is left unexplored.”
- Gramophone

“Budu elevates [the Bagatelles] from mere trifles to ravishing miniatures pointing up the humour, wit, quirkiness and charm that lies therein… I don’t think I’ve ever heard the fifth done as well; Budu’s pearl-like runs and capricious humour are an absolute delight… This is a captivating debut release by a pianist who has much to say about the music he is performing and who injects plenty of personality into his playing.”
- MusicWeb International

For his debut commercial solo album, the up-and-coming Brazilian-Romanian pianist Cristian Budu performs Chopin’s Préludes, Op. 28 and Beethoven’s Bagatelles, Op. 33, breathing new life into these much-loved classics. A winner of the prestigious Clara Haskil Competition, Badu has toured extensively and is also the founding director of the Pianosofia “music at home” community outreach programme.

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!
