"Lisitsa plays with great sensitivity and fluidity and succeeds in bringing together a valuable collection of some of the most haunting and appealing piano music of our time."
- Classic FM

A coming together of two artists with enormous followings, Valentina Lisitsa celebrates one of Britain’s most innovative and popular composers, Michael Nyman, with this 2014 release Chasing Pianos. The album coincides with Nyman's 70th birthday and features music from his soundtracks to well-loved films such as Wonderland and The Piano. Praised for his music’s originality, punchy simplicity and universal appeal, Nyman coined the term "minimalism" for an emergent musical genre; one for which he would make extensive contributions in many of his early scores and inspire a vast global audience.

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!
