Chopin: 24 Préludes

Alain Lefèvre

Available in 96 kHz / 24-bit* AIFF and FLAC high-resolution audio formats

"... Lefèvre tackles the works with a wide range of expression ... makes a compelling case for the nearly forgotten 18th century Spanish composer (Antonio Soler), who wrote a huge number of keyboard sonatas."

Internationally-renowned pianist Alain Lefèvre presents the entirety of Chopin's 24 Préludes along with a work by Spanish composer Antonio Soler on this solo recital album. These pieces unfold under the pianist’s fingertips and become one with the intensity of his playing. Virtuosity is at the service of a flawless musical interpretation as Lefèvre performs these preludes, each in its respective major or minor key, in the style used by the composer's idol, JS Bach in his Well-Tempered Clavier.

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!
