Digital Booklet
The complete cycle of Gerhard Frommel’s seven piano sonatas is completed with the release of this second volume, showcasing award-winning pianist Tatjana Blome. Frommel regarded his piano sonatas as a miniature compendium of his entire output, reflecting a fundamentally Romantic approach melded with Stravinskian vitality. The Sixth Sonata’s poised profundity, inventiveness and structural perfection gives it a place as one of the best in its genre, its serene transparency lying between the powerfully heroic Fifth Sonata and the crystalline quality of the Seventh Sonata, Frommel’s last such work. "The spirit of Frommel’s sonatas runs like a recurrent theme in his complete oeuvre. I have found a cosmic entirety via interpretation and presentation of each individual piece of this wonderful music. Like looking through a kaleidoscope of mosaics united as symmetrical figures, one can find a whole world of its own in each of those figures. In this regard, the development and unfolding of the musical language of Gerhard Frommel can be identified in his complete set of works as well as in the development of each individual sonata." - Tatjana Blome

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!
