Award-winning Brazilian pianist Sergio Monteiro presents this recording of piano transcriptions of groundbreaking symphonic poems that Liszt supervised and produced, vivid scores transformed into the virtuoso piano medium in which form their pictorial richness could be enjoyed anew.

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!
