"... a performance of stupendous brio ... his Horowitz-honed virtuosity in the final pages is overwhelming in its pace and dynamism." - Gramophone "The spectacular sounds of Ravel's orchestration of Mussorgsky's masterpiece truly are tailor made for Mercury's Living Presence sound and I was completely bowled over by the magnificence exuded by this superbly remastered disc. When I am faced with such discs, I really am at a loss at what to write, such is the perfection and beauty of the interpretations and recordings." - Classical.Net This album combines recordings from 1961 and 1962 by American classical piano sensation Byron Janis, who presents two versions of Pictures at an Exhibition: one version for piano and another version for piano and orchestra arranged by Maurice Ravel. Antal Doráti leads the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra on this album of what were premieres at the time of release.

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!
