Digital Booklet
"... good sound, a fine selection of music ... easily recommended for both its music and its performer." - Fanfare This recording devoted to the piano works of Alexandre Tansman is a deeply personal project for soloist Margaret Fingerhut. A composer who has remained largely overlooked, Tansman was born in Lodz, the same city in Poland where Fingerhut's great-grandparents came from. Since making that discovery, Fingerhut spent 20 years assiduously collecting the many piano works he composed over his long and prolific career. "I feel his music deserves to be revalued and heard by a new generation of listeners ... I wanted to present an overview of his unique style and musical language. While the influences of Ravel, Poulenc, Milhaud and Stravinsky are apparent, along with jazz-inspired techniques, he himself professed his music to be rooted in his native Polish culture. So the starting point for this disc had to be his Mazurkas: after all, he wrote more of them than almost any other composer except for that other famous Polish exile-in-Paris, Chopin!" - Margaret Fingerhut

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!
