Multiple Juno Award-nominated pianist Stewart Goodyear presents some of his favourite works by Ravel, including Gaspard de la nuit, considered one of the most challenging pieces ever composed for piano. All of these selections were written within a 10 year span during Ravel's early career, between 1899 and 1909; the earliest two works that bookend the programme were composed while Ravel was still studying at the Conservatoire de Paris under Gabriel Fauré.

"Ravel was a long time coming. I first heard Bolero and wore out that album. Then, I was just inspired to listen to every single piece that Ravel wrote ... every piece that he wrote for piano, it felt adventurous it felt revolutionary. I was seduced, inspired, sometimes frightened, but I couldn’t let go of Ravel and I had to do this album."

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!
