"Lisitsa is a serious artist … her essential attribute is a fevered urgency, an almost desperate desire to suck the expressive marrow from a piece."
- The Daily Telegraph

Valentina Lisitsa, a true star of the social media generation, presents this album comprising Schumann’s Romantic-era Symphonic Études, including five additional movements restored by Brahms in 1890 after Schumann’s death. Also included here are all of Chopin’s contributions to the genre, considered some of the most challenging music ever composed for the piano.

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!
