Felt Hammers documents the complete solo piano works of composer, scholar and poet Michael Hicks, performed here by Keith Kirchoff. These solo pieces as well as other chamber works that Hicks composed over a period of almost 30 years have been performed and recorded by several ensembles around the world. The centerpiece of this collection is Hicks's The Stations of the Cross. "We watch Michael Hicks grow as an artist, revealing the purest essence of his musical voice. With rests sometimes lasting as long as 15 seconds, he invites the listener into a space of 'the now': in which silence is just as important as sound." - Keith Kirchoff

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!
