"Four Stars ... all performed with the lucidity that is a hallmark of Hill’s playing ... a hugely rewarding and important disc." - The Guardian "Five Stars ... a new Messiaen work may be the focus here, but this would be an outstanding recital even without that enticement ... Hill provides a masterclass in capturing a composer's idiom with warmth and humanity." - BBC Music Magazine "With a beautiful recorded balance equally capturing the subtle colours and drama of both the music and Peter Hill’s performances, this is both a piano recording of demonstration quality and a musical experience to treasure." - MusicWeb International "Editor's Choice ... Hill's realization forms a rewarding substantial centrepiece to this outstanding recital ... the appeal of the disc is greatly enhanced by the exceptional quality of the recording, with every facet of Hill's uncompromisingly extensive expressive range vividly captured." - Gramophone In 2012, leading pianist and Messiaen scholar Peter Hill made a remarkable discovery among the composer’s papers: several pages of tightly written manuscript from 1961, constituting a near-complete and hitherto unknown work for piano. Hill was able to fill in some missing dynamics and articulations by consulting Messiaen’s birdsong notebooks and here sets this glittering addition to Messiaen’s piano output in the context both of the composer’s own earlier work and of music by the many younger composers on whom Messiaen was a profound influence, from Stockhausen and Takemitsu to George Benjamin, who like Hill himself worked closely with the composer.

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!
