"... an invaluable guide to Krenek's piano music ..."
- Fanfare

"... (presented persuasively) by Stanislav Khristenko ... given the quality of this inaugural volume we can look forward to the second volume with confidence."
- MusicWeb International

"Khristenko's playing offers suitably cool clarity; he articulates lines for melodic eloquence even when that melodic quality is not obvious and maintains an admirable lightness of touch."
- BBC Music Magazine

Stanislav Khristenko kicks off the first extended survey of the piano music of Ernst Krenek with this release, featuring the Fourth Sonata which revisits the graceful elegance of the First Viennese School in the style of the Second. The album also contains the world premiere of a brief Prelude and concludes with Krenek’s completed version of Schubert’s unfinished Piano Sonata No. 15.

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!
