Following the enormous success of her Odradek debut with The Delta Piano Trio performing "The Mirror with Three Faces", Vera Kooper displays her pianistic depth and dexterity in solo piano music by Beethoven, including her own transcription of one of his songs, 'An die Hoffnung'. Vera Kooper first became transfixed by Beethoven’s music in her teens, playing his piano works with increasing devotion, regarding them as a “manual for life”. For Vera Kooper, “Beethoven’s music is endlessly rich in its range of human expression and a timeless testament to humanity in all its facets.” Beethoven frequently dug deep to find courage and perseverance in the face of adversity, and as Kooper describes in her Artist Statement, included in the album booklet: “He wanted his music to be a voice of hope for mankind. The title of this album is inspired by my favourite German phrase, ‘Die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt’: ‘Hope is the last to die’.”

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!
