“Siirala's performances are masterly and warmly sympathetic throughout, and never more so than in Godowsky's horrendously demanding Passacaglia on Schubert's Unfinished Symphony.
Even Horowitz balked before this challenge, complaining that you needed six hands to encompass such fearsome difficulties.”
- Gramophone

Launched to into the spotlight when he won the London International Piano Competition in 2000, this is the debut recording of Finnish pianist Antti Siirala. Playing a programme of solo piano transcriptions of Schubert’s oeuvre by luminaries such as Liszt, Prokofiev, and Busoni, Siirala’s performance is refreshing and virtuosic.

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!
