- The Guardian

"His playing perfectly balanced stylish, aristocratic restraint with surging power and passion ..."
- Gramophone

Austrian pianist Ingolf Wunder won second prize at the 2010 Warsaw International Chopin Competition, demonstrating how skillfully he plays works by the great Polish composer. On this 2014 release, Wunder revisits his beloved Chopin and presents two of the greatest hits in the piano repertoire: Chopin's and Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concertos, recorded live at St. Petersburg's 2012 White Nights Festival. Wunder teams up with the supreme musicianship of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of legendary conductor Vladimir Ashkenazy.

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!
