Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    73:17
This is the fifth volume in a highly praised series of the piano works of Joachim Raff from British-Vietnamese pianist Tra Nguyen, an advocate for neglected music. The album contains the world premiere recording of Blätter und Blüten ("Leaves and Blossoms"), consisting of 12 melodic and colourful depictions of the then popular vogue for The Language of Flowers. By contrast, the Grande Sonate is a late work conceived on a quasi-symphonic scale. One of Raff’s major statements, it represents the culmination of his writing for the piano.

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!
