"The firmness of attack and the depth of sound that make (Gilels's and the Berlin Philharmonic's) playing so thrillingly dynamic can be offset by the most poignant of delicate gestures. There is undeniable grandeur to these readings, but with those additional qualities of wise thinking, generous expression and artistry of great subtlety, these performances are in a class of their own."
- The Telegraph

The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Eugen Jochum recorded this album dedicated to Brahms in the 1970s: the two concertos date back to 1972, recorded amid the warm acoustics of Berlin’s Jesus Christus Kirche, while the seven Fantasias are from a 1975 session in Finland. Late Russian pianist Emil Gilels joins the orchestra on this entire inspired programme which was included on its list of the 100 greatest recordings by Gramophone.

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!
