“The sensitivity, tonal refinement and occasional micromanagement typifying Amir Katz's Chopin Nocturnes, Ballades and Impromptus (Oehms) and Mendelssohn Songs Without Words (Live Classics) prevail throughout his Schubert Impromptus… certainly worth hearing.”
- Gramophone

Israeli-born pianist Amir Katz presents Schubert's treasured and revered Impromptus on this release for Orfeo Records. Extensively recorded, Katz's sensitivity and musicality manage to make this oft-heard collection special, displaying his intimate understanding of Schubert's pianistic writing.

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!
