Digital Booklet
Steven Mayer presents some of Louis Moreau Gottschalk's finest pieces on this solo piano recording which displays the composer's considerable harmonic ingenuity. Gottschalk was the first important American composer to fuse European classical piano music with American cultural influences, including folk music and Latin American dances. Although still revered for his anticipation of elements of ragtime and Harlem stride piano, he owed his greatest musical debt to Chopin. This collection of memorable and catchy tunes includes the world premiere of Mayer’s piano arrangement of La nuit des tropiques.

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!
