“… effectively sets the standard for 21st century Prokofiev interpretation.” - International Piano Magazine "... strongly recommended ..." - International Record Review “… he (Bavouzet) plays these challenging works brilliantly, with crisp clarity, flair and style … Gianandrea Noseda … draws inspired, colorful playing from the excellent BBC Philharmonic.” - The New York Times Jean-Efflam Bavouzet performs all five of Prokofiev’s formidable piano concertos in partnership with Gianandrea Noseda and the BBC Philharmonic. The flair of Bavouzet for powerful 20th century repertoire was made clear in his recording of Bartók’s Piano Concertos, described by The Daily Telegraph as "vibrant in colour, vital in rhythm and detail, and viscerally exciting in impact."

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!
