“Joop Celis’s second volume in his cycle of York Bowen’s piano music is as triumphant as his first… not a single piece on this excellently recorded disc could be in more sensitive hands. Joop Celis confirms his stature at every point, and Vol 3 of his Bowen pilgrimage is hopefully already on the horizon.” - Gramophone “Celis deserves the highest praise for his powerful advocacy of this passionate and appealing music, heard here in warmly-recorded sound. Highly recommended.” - Classic FM Magazine “[Celis] is clearly entirely at home with Bowen the miniaturist… the sound of the piano is superlative, even and smooth in a natural acoustic.” - International Record Review “Dutch pianist Joop Celis displays impeccable technique in Bowen’s demanding scores. He is clearly an excellent musician. Chandos offers clear, vibrant sound. A lot of dedicated work and effort has gone into this recording.” - American Record Guide A devoted advocate of York Bowen’s piano works, Dutch pianist Joop Celis here performs the English composer’s Piano Sonata No. 5 in F Minor, Op. 72, 4 Bagatelles, Op. 147, and Siciliano and Toccatina, Op. 128, among other pieces. Sometimes called the “English Rachmaninov”, Bowen’s compositions are highly virtuosic and Celis performs them with verve and warmth.

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!
