Celebrated Canadian pianist Louis Lortie kicks off his series dedicated to Fauré with this recording, which purposely travels through the composer's various creative periods, from easily appealing early works through to the late and unjustly neglected Préludes, which Lortie calls "a masterpiece of condensed harmonic and melodic audacity." The pianist also interprets the romantic, post-Chopinesque genres of the Nocturnes and Barcarolles along with path-breaking small forms of Neoclassical aesthetics such as the suite from Pelléas et Mélisande in a solo piano version highlighting the ambiguity of a canvas of pianistic and orchestral colourings that would become a major influence on Fauré's successors.

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!
