Digital Booklet
"Disc of the Month." - Gramophone "... this intriguing programme serves to confirm that his remarkable musicianship is no flash in the pan." - Sinfini Music "A superb collection from a brilliant young pianist ... Grosvenor brings all of his virtuosic brilliance and musical intelligence to a wide-ranging and very attractive selection of pieces, all immaculately played and crisply recorded." - Classic FM British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor presents a typically imaginative and appealing programme of piano music on this 2014 album inspired by the dance form. Shining the spotlight on the music of movement, Dances is a dazzling display of solo works for piano from Bach to boogie woogie via Chopin, Granados, Albeniz, Scriabin and The Blue Danube.

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!
