Josu de Solaun presents this second volume devoted to the piano music of Enescu, featuring the landmark Piano Sonata No. 3. With its sheer inventiveness and enormous range of expression, from the boisterously rustic and joyful, to the utmost tragedy, from the bawdy and witty, to a sense of fragmentation akin to madness, it is a gift to all pianists from one of the most fertile imaginations of all times. No wonder it has figured prominently in the repertoire of many great pianists over the years. The programme also includes Enescu's Prélude & Fugue and the Suite No. 2. "(The Suite No. 2) stands as one of the great 20th century works for the instrument, a real treasury of both pianistic sumptuousness and bittersweet nostalgia." - Josu de Solaun

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!
