"Here is playing of real poetic poetic allure bathed in a golden piano tone."
- Gramophone

"Four Stars. Arghamanyan is at the top of her game, as is the splendid Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra and their young conductor. PentaTone provides wondrous sound ..."
- Audiophile Audition

"The orchestra play convincingly throughout this disc demonstrating keen concentration and splendid musicianship. The orchestral colours are broad in range and spectacularly vivid."
- MusicWeb International

Armenian-born pianist Nareh Arghamanyan, admitted to the Vienna Conservatory at the age of 14 (the youngest ever!), earned glowing reviews in 2012 for her debut album, a Rachmaninov recital that ClassicsToday.com awarded 10 out of 10 and uses as a benchmark recording. Arghamanyan follows up that impressive debut with this release, an all-Liszt programme with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra under Alain Altinoglu. In addition to the two piamo concertos, Arghamanyan presents Liszt's Totentanz and the Fantasia on Hungarian Folk Themes.

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!
