"... enjoyable and delightful due to Grimaud's committed and energetic performances ... one of our most interesting and original classical artists." - The Huffington Post This EP from pianist Hélène Grimaud contains a remix and an edit of Debussy's Préludes, a sample of her experimental and deeply personal live album Water, recorded at a site-specific multimedia installation in New York City in December 2014. Grimaud collaborated with Turner Prize-winning artist Douglas Gordon, who transformed the cavernous Wade Thompson Drill Hall at New York’s Park Avenue Armory by slowly flooding its vast floor to create the impression of an endless field of water, entirely surrounding the grand piano at which Grimaud performed. "What inspired the idea to record this album is really the fascination that so many composers of the 19th and 20th centuries seem to have had with the element of water." - Hélène Grimaud

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!
