Muzio Clementi saw the piano evolve from relative fragility in the 18th century to its dominance at the beginning of the Romantic era- his influence in developing the instrument’s virtuosic possibilities cannot be overstated. These works embrace this progression, illustrating Clementi’s earlier Classical style in the Sonata, Op. 1, No. 3, introducing more scintillating virtuosity in Op. 8, No. 2, and taking us to the dramatic final sonatas including Op. 50, No. 3, which narrates the story of Dido, Queen of Carthage. Sadro De Palma was born in Naples, and made his recital debut at the age of nine. At the age of sixteen, he made his debut recording of works by Liszt, and participated in the premiere recording of Clementi’s Gradus ad Parnassum for Fonit Cetra- a recording which won the 20th Italian Critics Award. He has performed at prestigious venues and festivals around the world with some of the greatest artists and ensembles including Andrea Bocelli, Donato Renzetti, Yuri Temirkanov, Boris Belkin, and others.

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!
