Canadian pianist Anastasia Rizikov topped off a string of career awards in 2015 with a gold medal at the age of 15 at the Jaén International Piano Competition in Jaén, Spain, resulting in this debut recital album. The Toronto-born Rizikov delivers sparking interpretations of Albéniz’s radiant and virtuoso Triana and the piece commissioned for the competition, Soñando María Magdalena, which transforms the traditional Jaén melody La carrasquilla into a tender and powerful personal journey. The programme is completed by the disquieting beauty of Beethoven’s Tempest Sonata and the breathtaking energy of Grieg’s only work in the same genre.

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!
