American pianist Hyperion Knight wrote his Ph.D dissertation on Beethoven's Sonata in C Major, "Waldstein" piano concerto so it was only fitting that he would eventually record the work. Knight plays a nine foot Sheldon Smith concert grand, beautifully captured by Wilson Audiophile's engineers in the very workshop in Berkeley, California where the piano was built. Stravinsky's Trois Movements de Petrouchka ballet trilogy rounds out this 1983 release.

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue master source. Due to the nature of analogue tape recording, it may contain artifacts or audio which uses a limited amount of the available dynamic range / frequency bandwidth of high-resolution digital audio. As such, it is offered as a high-resolution documentation of a historical release.

Assistance by David A. Wilson, III and Sheryl Lee Wilson
Mastering by Bruce Leek

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!
