"The pianist sculpts silence within the flesh of the note. Her quest for meaning creates that rare feeling that music seems to know the interpreter better than she knows herself. The notes run free on the keyboard to reach the essence of music, which anyone can enjoy profoundly."
- Le Figaro

Anne Queffélec, unanimously considered as one of the most remarkable pianists of our time, enjoys international fame as well as an exceptional influence over musical life.

After graduating at the Paris Conservatoire, she studied in Vienna, where Paul Badura-Skoda, Jorg Demus and especially Alfred Brendel respectively became her teachers. The audiences of the world would soon discover the charm and musical smartness of this great performer when she successfully won the International competitions in Munich and in Leeds.

Franz Schubert's Impromptus are a series of eight pieces for solo piano composed in 1827. They were published in two sets of four impromptus each: the first two pieces in the first set were published in the composer's lifetime as Op. 90; the second set was published posthumously as Op. 142 in 1839 (with a dedication added by the publisher to Franz Liszt). The third and fourth pieces in the first set were published in 1857 (although the third piece was printed by the publisher in G major, instead of G-flat as Schubert had written it, and remained available only in this key for many years). The two sets are now catalogued as D. 899 and D. 935 respectively. They are considered to be among the most important examples of this popular early 19th-century genre.

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!
