Digital Booklet
"Here's a 'concept album' that really works ... not only is an attractive idea on its own, but also is a showcase for the pianist's interpretive skills and an enticing survey of keyboard music from Bach to Ligeti and beyond ... Pöntinen's performances are uniformly excellent, the sonics typically exceptional and the whole disc an unalloyed pleasure from beginning to end. If the concept appeals, go for it." - ClassicsToday.com Swedish pianist and composer Roland Pöntinen was inspired by the silver screen for his diverse and imaginative 2006 album Pianorama. From the very beginning, the silent era, music has been a major ingredient of the cinematic experience and filmmakers have always been extremely painstaking in their choices. When selecting from existing works, solo piano has always been popular, possibly a reference to the live piano player in theatres of the 1920s. Several such pieces are brought together here, from films by greats like Bergman, Kubrick and Polanski. Atmospheric in its own right, the music of Debussy, Chopin, Schubert, Bach and Ligeti becomes even more evocative when combined with often striking visuals. The partnership of Federico Fellini and Nino Rota also features on the programme, with Pöntinen’s own improvisations on Rota’s themes for Amarcord, perhaps Fellini’s most popular movie.

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!
