"Five Stars ... impeccable technique and sense of timing ... the orchestra sits well in the hall, with a natural sense of perspective ... (her quieter playing) allows her seamless legato and tonal sophistication to shine."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Four Stars ... very beautiful it sounds ... the concerto is engrossingly done, with the first movement majestically shaped and the finale sensibly paced so that we appreciate its logic as well as her panache. And she does indeed play the Adagio like a declaration of love."
- The Guardian

"... (on the Brahms) Batiashvili maintains a firm line and a sweetly singing tone throughout, again coaxing from Thielemann and the Staatskapelle Dresden an intimate veil of sound, expressive and dreamily impassioned ... Batiashvili manages to impress her own stamp upon a performance that balances the intimate gesture with the heroic impulse."
- Audiophile Audition

"Batiashvili’s Brahms is beautifully played and makes rewarding listening ... the Staatskapelle Dresden under Christian Thielemann provide the finest imaginable support ... Alice Sara Ott demonstrates what a fine recital pianist she has become ... sound quality from the Lukaskirche, Dresden and the Musikstudios, Munich is satisfyingly clear and well balanced."
- MusicWeb International

"Editor's Choice ... even before Lisa Batiashvili makes her entrance, we can sense this will be an outstanding performance of the Brahms. Finely balanced, spacious recording, with woodwind and horns well placed, highlights the fine orchestral playing: solo lines projected but with the whole beautifully blended ... in the finale, Batiashvili and Thielemann maintain a springy, joyful rhythmic impetus throughout ... Batiashvili is forceful whenever she needs to be, while proving adept in finding moments of delicacy and playfulness."
- Gramophone

On this highly-praised recording, Lisa Batiashvili takes on the supreme challenge of Brahms's Violin Concerto, ideally accompanied by Christian Thielemann and the Staatskapelle Dresden. To conclude the programme, Batiashvili is joined by gifted pianist Alice Sarah Ott on Clara Schumann's Three Romances.

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!
