This third and final volume from Josu de Solaun dedicated to Enescu’s piano works shows the unique blend of influences the composer absorbed during his teenage years in Vienna and Paris. These start with his Brahms-like treatment of the piano as a symphonic instrument in the Scherzo and Ballade and his infusion of French late-Romanticism and Fauré in the Impromptus. The crowning achievement of these early compositions is his Suite No. 1, Enescu’s first public solo piano opus, a stylized evocation of Bach seen through the prism of turn-of-the-century Paris. De Solaun includes three world premieres among his selections.

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!
