"Four Stars ... superbly played and recorded ... excellent both musically and sonically ... it’s certainly the best piano recording I have heard and the performance is faultless."
- Audiophile Audition

"... Lewin takes a firm if never less than musicianly hand to many of the composer’s most fragile and intimate confidences ... masterly and assured in such outgoing music ... sound is excellent ..."
- Gramophone

Acclaimed American pianist Michael Lewin's Beau Soir - Préludes Book II & Other Works is a collection of popular works from Debussy, one of the world’s favourite composers, captured in stunning high resolution stereo on this 2014 release.

"Debussy is one of the most special composers for me. He wrote what is for me some of the most beautiful, rewarding music to play and to live with. This is the first album I've done where a majority of the pieces are standard repertoire, many of them often recorded. One should really have something very, very special and particular and unique and hopefully compelling and convincing to say about standard repertoire if one is going to set it down for posterity. Hopefully this will reflect my long involvement and experiences with Debussy."
- Michael Lewin

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!
