"... certainly confirms that Arghamanyan has a remarkable technique ... it's a daunting series of pieces that she confronts head on, swaddling the pieces in rich, warm tone ..."
- The Guardian

"Arghamanyan’s recital reveals a more disciplined, controlled, architecturally aware and expressively sophisticated artist ... helped by PentaTone’s full-bodied, lifelike sonics. A terrific release in every way."
- ClassicsToday.com

Armenian-born pianist Nareh Arghamanyan, a laureate of more than 18 international piano competitions, presents this recital of Rachmaninov's solo piano works recorded when she was only 22. The album includes Rachmaninov's Morceaux de Fantaisie, Variations on a Theme of Corelli and the very challenging Etudes-tableaux.

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!
