Pianist Romain Descharmes and the Malmö Symphony Orchestra present two concertos by Saint-Saëns, both immortal in the canon of French romantic composers. Spanning almost four decades, his five piano concertos vary widely in character but offer some of his most exciting if unorthodox creations and represent an important evolutionary phase in the French piano concerto. The Piano Concerto No. 1, widely considered the first by a major French composer, is a youthful and exuberant piece while the virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 2 is one of Saint-Saëns’s most popular and frequently performed works in any genre.

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!
