Jonathan Plowright continues his acclaimed series of Brahms's solo works for piano with this fourth volume, bookended by the virtuosic Variations on a Theme by Paganini. Playing the set has famously been described as requiring "fingers of steel, a heart of burning lava and the courage of a lion," possibly why Brahms divided the 28 variations into two books. Between the variations, Plowright offers selections that span almost 40 years of Brahms’s life.

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!
