In the 18th century, instrumental music was largely the preserve of the aristocracy. Many of the nobility furnished their courts with instrumentalists or music ensembles, for the entertainment of the master of the house and his family and guests. Revolution and Napoleonic wars changed the face of society, redistributing economic power. In the years between the Congress of Vienna (1814) and the Revolution of 1848-49, new ways were found to finance and perform instrumental music. It was during this time that Liszt composed his ‘Annees de perelinage,’ and his ‘Premiere Annee. Suisse.’ This release also features the programme music ‘Francois de Paul marchant sur les flots,' which tells the story of St. Francis. Francesco Piemontesi is a pianist of exceptional refinement of expression, which is allied to a consummate technical skill. Widely renowned for his interpretation of Mozart and the early Romantic repertoire, Piemontesi’s pianism and sensibility has a close affinity with the later 19th century and 20th century repertoire of Brahms, Liszt, Dvorak, Ravel, Debussy, and Bartok.

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!
