"… the music is wonderful… the pleasure of an encounter with this gorgeous music."
– MusicWeb International

"The smooth playing of the Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz under Karl-Heinz Steffens…brings into being a variegated reflection of these works with a charm of its very own."
–FonoForum

He ranks as one of the many lone wolves and outsiders in music, and as a composers thoroughly familiar to pundits, but whose works were all too often ousted from the concert repertoire by more popular contemporaries.

A clear ‘progression’ can be discerned in Szymanowski’s musical development. Whereas he was influenced by late Romanticism in his earliest works, after the middle of the First World War (i.e. the time of his return home) he was particularly attracted to Impressionism. From the works of this period on, he still remained committed to tonality, but goes to its very limits. Moreover, the orchestral works are usually accompanied by a lush and beguiling ecstasy of colours paralleled most likely in the music by Alexander Scriabin.

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!
