"Five Stars ... (Haefliger) combines a strenuously intellectual approach with a gorgeously velvety touch, the latter reminiscent of Wilhelm Kempff ... a disc to give balm to the soul."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... an ardent, animated and intelligently detailed performance, full of textual diversity that never spills over into contrivance or eccentricity ... an uncluttered, beautifully wrought finale concludes one of Haefliger's most satisfying releases."
- Gramophone

Andreas Haefliger continues his fascinating, thought-provoking and captivating Perspectives series with this sixth volume, released in 2014. Once again Haefliger juxtaposes the piano sonatas of Beethoven with works by other composers, casting an enlightening glow on the pieces that would not be so detectable if they were played in isolation. On Perspectives 6, themes of humanity, nature and love run through a programme emphatically meant to be listened to rather than analyzed intellectually.

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!
