"Four Stars ... (Ashkenazy's) account of the phantasmagoric Vers la Flamme which gives the disc its title (is) thrillingly persuasive ..."
- The Guardian

Vladimir Ashkenazy turns to the fine art of the piano miniature on this programme, unlocking the poetic expression and vibrant colours of forty exquisite pieces by Alexander Scriabin. Vers la Flamme, released in April 2015 to mark the centenary of Scriabin’s death, contains such late masterworks as the album’s title track and the Five Préludes.

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!
