"Ashkenazy's account of Rachmaninov's preludes has much competition these days, but it's still a rewarding performance. There's an exciting depth to Ashkenazy's tone, the layering of colours..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"The C sharp minor Prelude is so often murdered that it is a revelation to hear it done with such a fine blend of the imperious and the mysterious; it emerges here as a little masterpiece."
- Gramophone

Grammy-award winning Russian pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy brings his musical brilliance to Rachmaninov's piano preludes. In an intimate portrayal of some of Rachmaninov's most difficult piano works, Ashkenazy showcases his most sensitive and introspective musical interpretations on this album.

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!
