Total Playing Time    3:21:19
This triple album showcases George Enescu's complete works for solo piano, presented by Romanian pianist Raluca Stirbat. Enescu, while primarily known as a violinist, was also a talented pianist whose expressive and elaborate compositions for the instrument are woefully underrecorded. With this collection, Stirbat shines a light on this neglected repertoire.

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!
