Swedish pianist Roland Pöntinen represents Szymanowski's Impressionist and "popular" periods on this recording which displays the virtuosity and interpretative sensitivity for which Pöntinen is known. He leads with the Piano Sonata No. 3, the composer's last major work for solo piano. Based in Impressionism, the sonata achieves a synthesis between that and the style of his earlier music. Szymanowski's Mazurkas are rougher than Chopin's in tone, but the folk dance is nonetheless integrated into an original blend of European styles.

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!
