"Kempf's high octane playing suits much of Prokofiev's output. He is at his most impressive here in the Toccata, for which fast, accurate fingers are a prerequisite. But he is also vivid and flamboyant in the romantic gestures of the one-movement First Sonata ..."
- The Guardian

"... it would be hard to imagine a more fascinating example of composer and youthful interpreter ... Kempf is joyfully exuberant, flashing through every savage challenge with the assurance and instinct of a born virtuoso ... a superb disc, Kempf’s finest to date ... his Yamaha captures all the breathtaking fluency and sparkle of his fresh and vital pianism."
- Gramophone

Award-winning British pianist Freddy Kempf demonstrates his interpretive skill performing Prokofiev on this 2003 release featuring three of the composer's sonatas.

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!
