Polish pianist 

Ewa Kupiec pays tribute to composer Grażyna Bacewicz, a leading force bringing Polish music into the 20th century mainstream and onto the international stage. Kupiec is accompanied by the Capella Bydgostiensis Chamber Orchestra on this recording which features a brand new chamber orchestra version of the intense and expressive Piano Quintet No. 1 by conductor Mariusz Smolij. Despite the consistently superb quality of her music, Bacewicz has until recently remained largely overshadowed by later generation Polish composers such as Penderecki and Lutosławski.

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!
