Emil Gilels

"An unmissable selection ... we are in the presence of a great keyboard master whose characterization and control of colour and articulation are wholly remarkable."
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

"Here, surely, is a classic recording, one of calibre and status for all time. Gilels registers every nuance and modulation with an astonishing yet unobtrusive sensitivity. The recordings remain as impeccable as the playing. This is a disc for everyone’s desert island."
- Gramophone

Late Russian pianist Emil Gilels, considered one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century, lovingly recorded these 20 selections from Grieg's oeuvre of 66 short Lyric Pieces in 1974. The programme opens and closes with Grieg's first and very last lyric pieces and includes Butterfly, one of Grieg's best known compositions.

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!
