“These fine pieces are expertly done by Peter Pettinger… full marks to Chandos.” - Gramophone Magazine “Indeed, the whole disc is a delight. Pettinger judges all his tempos finely and captures both Elgarian nostalgia and his noble climaxes – short-lived but powerful nonetheless.” - The Elgar Journal British pianist Peter Pettinger presents a thoroughly charming collection of works for solo piano by Edward Elgar. The eminent composer wrote few works for the piano but those he did are a snapshot of 19th-century English musical life: salon pieces such as Rosemary and Skizze were a reliable way of generating income, as were the arrangements Elgar created of some of his orchestral works such as Dream Children, all performed with appropriate buoyancy by Pettinger.

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!
