Among his numerous awards, Korean-born pianist Seong-Jin Cho won the Chopin Competition’s coveted Gold Medal following three weeks of competition in October 2015, leading to the recording of his first studio album for Deutsche Grammophon. The programme begins with a masterful interpretation of the Piano Concerto No. 1, recorded at Abbey Road Studios, on which the 22-year-old Cho is accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Gianandrea Noseda. Chopin's four ballades for solo piano complete the album, a showcase for Cho's virtuosity.

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!
