“Brautigam gives full weight to its full-blooded textures and capturing all the music’s energy and excitement.” - BBC Music Magazine “I have been an admirer of Brautigam’s fiery, positive playing for some time. However, it’s fair to say that my breath was taken away by the mixture of superb instrument, vital, energetic playing and crystal clear recording.” - MusicWeb International For the second installment of Ronald Brautigam's complete series of Beethoven's solo piano works the fortepianist presents a selection of sonatas from Beethoven's early years in Vienna. Recorded on a fortepiano based on a 1805 Walter model, Brautigam relishes the virtuosity and intensity of these sonatas and the varied colours the McNulty-built instrument makes possible.

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!
