"Mr. Melnikov brings out the searching, quizzical qualities in the music, as the chords veer to unexpected harmonies and sometimes turn diffuse."
- The new York Times

"Russian Alexander Melnikov makes you wonder why these works are considered monotonous or didactic. In his virtuosic hands, each one glints."
- Fiona Maddocks, The Guardian

Acclaimed pianist Alexander Melnikov pays tribute to four monumental pieces in piano solo repertoire from Chopin, Liszt, Schubert, and Stravinsky in his album Four pianos, Four Pieces. The purpose of this album is to perform these works on the historically correct piano for each musical era. Listeners can hear the difference of these pianos because of the unique color and timbre each piano brings.

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!
