On her new album, pianist Hélène Grimaud explores the rich universe of German Romanticism, combining Robert Schumann's Kreisleriana op. 16 with Brahms' Intermezzi op. 117 and Lieder und Gesängen op. 32. Grimaud has known Schumann's Kreisleriana for most of her life. "You can spend a lifetime with a piece like this and always discover something new," the pianist says. Her special relationship with the German Romantics is evident on her album For Clara, which focuses not only on the pianist's relationship with the music of Robert Schumann and his protégé Brahms, but in particular on the two composers' connection to Clara Schumann. Grimaud recorded Brahms' Songs and Cantos op. 32. with baritone Konstantin Krimmel, who was already her musical partner on the album Silent Songs, about which BBC Music Magazine wrote: "Konstantin Krimmel and Hélène Grimaud deserve the highest praise for their confident and unaffected performance of this beautiful, dreamlike music." Together, Grimaud and Krimmel movingly convey the themes of love, loss, devotion, and disillusionment, expressed in both words and music. This Extended Edition adds Robert Schumann's "Piano Concerto in A Minor, Op. 54"!

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!
