Jan Lisiecki adds another release to his award-winning discography with this recording of Schumann’s complete works for piano and orchestra. At only 20 years old, the Canadian pianist presents strikingly mature and imaginative interpretations, backed by the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and Sir Antonio Pappano. Lisiecki’s personal vision of Schumann’s poetic works has evolved over several years, aided by meticulous preparation and deep immersion in the music. His approach to the Piano Concerto and the other selections here also benefitted from Pappano’s guidance and encouragement; in fact the album reflects the high level of rapport between soloist, orchestra and conductor.

"These pieces demand an incredibly close collaboration in order to accomplish what Schumann desired. I believe the sound of the Santa Cecilia Orchestra matches mine in the best possible way.”
- Jan Lisiecki

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!
