"Four Stars ... a very unique piano disc ... I heartily endorse the tone of the collection and think that the two new works are well worth exploring in particular."
- Audiophile Audition

Pianist Bruce Levingston's album Heavy Sleep is meant to reference not only the eponymous opening work on this album, but also to note the phrase’s allusion to death and eternal sleep. Each work relates either directly or spiritually to the theme of death, rebirth, or both. Voices of other composers or allusions to their own or others’ works are also found throughout these pieces, often appearing as subtle homage to composers of the past. The album opens and closes with world premiere recordings, including the title work which was composed specifically for Levingston by Timo Andres.

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!
