"Celis is a dedicated Bowen admirer ... he 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

"Joop Celis’s second volume 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 ..."
- Gramophone

"Impressively the second volume is, if anything, even better ... 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

This the second volume in a three album series from celebrated Dutch pianist Joop Celis dedicated to the works of York Bowen. The composer, described as "the English Rachmaninov", was a prodigious pianist whose deep and richly expressive music is known to only a few seekers of elusive musical gems. Bowen composed over 160 works which show a blend of Romanticism and strong individuality, however he was more responsive to two other national schools: the Russian and the French. It is this fusion of different styles which makes Bowen’s own very individual sound world so remarkable.

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!
