Grammy nomination - Producer of the Year, Classical, 2015

"... (a) fine release ... superbly recorded and immaculately performed, this is highly desirable ... excellent stereo mix ..."
- MusicWeb International

"... tour de force performances that convey the music with visceral impact, all captured in vivid recorded sound. If you like pianos, great playing and engaging music, you owe it to yourself to hear this excellent disc."
- ClassicsToday.com

"... a sparkling album of (Riley's) works for piano four-hands ... takes full advantage of 20 fingers and eight octaves to make a single piano soar with the richness of a symphony orchestra. ZOFO’s feisty performances surge with athletic precision ..."
- The Washington Post

Piano duet ZOFO celebrates Terry Riley's 80th birthday with this 2015 collection of original compositions, arrangements and a special commission by the pianists, Eva-Maria Zimmermann and Keisuke Nakagoshi. It's quite evident that the composer and performers were personally engaged: from the very beginning, Riley worked in collaboration with the two pianists. The Praying Mantis Rag, composed for ZOFO, actively illustrates the duet's vibrant character.

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!
