Grammy nomination - Producer of the Year, Classical, 2015

"... Gourari knows how to weave a spell ... this CD, which boasts very good sound (and) a fine piano is an exercise in dreamy charisma."
- Fanfare

"... a rich feast of superbly recorded piano in a resonant but not overly swampy setting which suits Gourari’s playing perfectly."
- MusicWeb International

Pianist Anna Gourari underlines the intense beauty of her sound in Prokofiev’s title work, a set of 20 “fleeting visions” whose moods swing from lyrical to sardonic, grotesque to calm, melancholic to boisterous, nostalgic to insistent and back again. The album also features Medtner’s Four Fairy Tales from one of his sets of skazki; tales of musical figments, of melodies and harmonies, rhythmic profiles and altered chords, shapes and gestures and atmospheres. Completing the programme is Chopin’s Piano Sonata No. 3 which encompasses a Beethoven-inspired opening movement.

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!
