Composer, conductor and pianist Thomas Adès has been described by The New York Times as ‘among the most accomplished all-round musicians of his generation’. His "Concert Paraphrase on Powder Her Face" reflects the glamour of the opera’s subject in the grand manner of Liszt or Busoni, while "Still Sorrowing" and "Darknesse Visible" explore John Dowland’s haunting lute works. Heard here in its world premiere recording, competition piece "Blanca Variations" is lyrical and flowing in character, and "Traced Overhead" is a vivid description of ascent and flight. Adès captures and transforms Polish style in his "Mazurkas", and the spirit of Satie and Ravel in a "Souvenir" from the film Colette.

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!
