The waltz has inspired many composers. From the Romantic era to the twentieth century, Aldo Ciccolini's recording offers a very wide-ranging survey of the genre, while nonetheless reserving a special place for the French composers, both famous and less well known, that the artist has served with passion ever since the start of his career.

With this album, Maestro Ciccolini has produced the most varied programme of his entire recording career: thirteen works and thirteen composers.
This recital is organised around two pillars, the most extended pieces on the programme, two waltzes that are extremely difficult and at the same time of great interest: Fauré's third Valse-Caprice op.59, which propels us into the environment of a certain Parisian aristocracy, and Gabriel Pierné's suite Viennoise, very different in character, which comes very close to the world of the Folies Bergère.

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!
