"... Schlimé draws you into this mesmerising and sometimes playful Parisian whirl, especially in the final exhilarating movements from Prokofiev. Terrific orchestral playing under Pletnev …”
- Classic FM

Young pianist Francesco Tristano Schlimé interprets the two piano concertos on this 2006 release with finesse and taste; he is supported by a superb performance from the Russian National Orchestra under the leadership of conductor Mikhail Pletnev, an accomplished pianist in his own right. In addition to the Ravel and Prokofiev concertos, the album ends with an original Schlimé composition entitled 3 Improvisations.

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!
