"Notes pour and sparkle from Brautigam's fingers like diamonds ... clearly Bruatigam has chosen his instrument to reflect his love of clarity, lightness and speed ..."
- Gramophone

"Five Stars ... has many of the virtues of its predecessors, not least, a refreshing liveliness coupled with a welcome sense of risk-taking ... certainly, there’s much to enjoy in these performances ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Four Stars ... the opening of the concerto is excellent: Parrott gets appropriately spacious playing from the orchestra, while the bell-like tone of Brautigam's instrument, a Steinway Model D, helps to prevent the music from sounding too bombastic ... (in the Fantasia) Brautigam could almost be Beethoven himself improvising."
- Classic FM

For the final installment in his series of Beethoven's works for piano and orchestra, Dutch pianist Ronald Brautigam has saved the final crowning glory of the composer's concerto output, the Piano Concerto No. 5. It is coupled with the Choral Fantasia, an intriguing piece scored for piano, orchestra and chorus with vocal soloists. Brautigam, the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra and Andrew Parrott are all in their usual top form, joined for a brief but crucial appearance of the eminent Eric Ericson Chamber Choir in the Choral Fantasia.

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!
