"Five Stars ... from the very start, the luminous playing tells us this is a pianist of rare sensitivity. The word seems almost to float in this performance, continually remaking itself from moment to moment and never come to rest ... Varjón ranges through the music as if mapping an unknown landscape ... a very impressive and intelligently planned programme." - BBC Music Magazine Hungarian pianist Dénes Várjon makes his solo recording debut on this recital that begins with the dark, brooding language of Alban Berg’s Piano Sonata, shaped in the shadow of Schoenberg. The programme then explores the nebulous regions of Janáček’s impressionistic and near-contemporaneous In the Mists, finally emerging into the clear light of Liszt’s immense, immensely influential Piano Sonata In B-Minor.

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!
