A true pioneer of this repertoire, Swedish pianist Fredrik Ullén continues his highly praised survey of Kaikhosru Sorabji's Transcendental Studies with this fifth installment in the series, featuring 12 of the 100 studies. Especially intriguing is No. 75 Passacaglia, one of the longest of these works at almost 29 minutes. Despite the fact that Sorabji wrote the Transcendental Studies in the early 1940s, most of the individual pieces were not performed for more than 50 years after their composition.

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!
