One of the most famous pieces in the piano literature is Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fur Elise. But what if originally the work was called “For Therese?” Every work of music is in some way relational, and since Beethoven, when he was 40, fell in love with 19-year-old Therese Malfatti, it seems logical. Similarly, Johann Sebastian Bach dedicated the “Prelude and Fugue in C Major” to his deep love Anna Magdalena. This musical journey takes us on a journey through time to explore these and similar relationships. Japanese pianist Masako Ohta devotes herself to classical and contemporary classical music. She studied piani at the Toho Gakuen School of Music, the University of the Arts Berlin, and with Gyorgy Sebok, Andras Schiff, and Gyorgy Kurtag. She compiled the musical declarations of love for this album alongside producer Stefan Winter.

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!
