“[Grimaud's] ardour and romanticism are entirely suited to the Berg and Liszt Sonatas: the technical challenges are effortlessly overcome and the tonal architecture is clearly paramount. Her performance of the Berg Sonata is superb, tightly controlled and forcefully articulated...” - Nicholas Salwey, International Record Review “a remarkable rendition of Alban Berg's compact 20th-century masterpiece . . . Grimaud channels her raw energy into something almost sensual, as if her hands were caressing the contours of an oversized sculpture.” - John Terauds, Toronto Star French pianist Hélène Grimaud presents Resonances, an unexpected release that brings together works by four very different composers. Featuring piano sonatas by Mozart, Berg, and Liszt alongside Bartók's 6 Roumanian Folk Dances, BB 68, Sz. 56, this is a truly versatile album which shows Grimaud's command and musicality across these diverse styles.

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!
