Digital Booklet
"Four Stars. Arno Piters’s playing is as mellifluous as can be ... if you enjoy the art of the arranger, even if you’re just an admirer of all things Brahms and/or Schumann, there is much here to savour." - Audiophile Audition This recording puts the emphasis on the arrangements, handled by Dutch composer and conductor Geert van Keulen. He states that for this performance only the piano music was adapted while the clarinet scores remain unchanged. Stylistically, he says he tried to stay as close to the originals as possible: except for a few chords and solutions for a number of typically pianistic parts, the notes from the originals were not altered. As Schumann and Brahms were inspired by the musicians for whom they wrote these pieces, in working on the score van Keulen also had in mind certain musicians whose musical qualities aroused his enthusiasm, notably the score for the Fantasiestücke, written at the request of clarinetist Arno Piters.

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!
