Nishizaki’s spontaneous performance is a match for many by more famous names ... her playing is individual yet unselfconscious. The digital recording is excellent, with resonant, spacious orchestral sound."
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

This album dedicated to the works of Beethoven showcases the violin, performed by award-winning soloist Takako Nishizaki with the Slovak Philharmonic under conductor Kenneth Jean. Beethoven's Violin Concerto is his only completed concerto for the instrument. The two Romances for violin and orchestra were earlier works, possibly written as slow movements for a violin concerto that had been started some years earlier but was never finished. They both have a perfection of their own and remain a significant part of the solo violin concert repertoire.

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!
