Award-winning French pianist Elizabeth Sombart is accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra led by Pierre Vallet on Chopin's two piano concertos, virtuoso pieces whose creativity had a significant impact on 19th century composition and radically altered the course of music history. Reflecting the spirit of traditional folk dance from the composer's native Poland, there is a strong sense of longing in these works, a wistful aching of the heart, which continues to transcend boundaries today. The ephemeral music of Chopin has been a lifelong preoccupation for Sombart, not only as a performer but as a pedagogue seeking to share with the widest possible 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!
