"Recording of the Month ... Bavouzet’s chronological journey through the Beethoven sonatas has not been surpassed in the last 30 years. Yes, it’s that good."
- Gramophone

"Four Stars ... the qualities that were so impressive in his polished performances of the early sonatas: warm tone, clean keyboard textures, smartly sprung rhythms and, above all, the pervading sense of freshness and enthusiasm, also emerge regularly in these works ..."
- The Guardian

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s fascinating journey through Beethoven’s complete sonatas comes to an end with this third volume, a prodigious triple album containing the most mature and exploratory of Beethoven’s sonatas, including the heroic, two-movement Appassionata. Bavouzet’s distinguished interpretations reveal not only the technical virtuosity but also the emotional power of these contrasted works. With his characteristically fresh and energetic, yet expressive and profound approach, Bavouzet captures a Beethoven drawing the contours of romantic keyboard textures that would become the staple of the next generation.

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!
