World-class pianist Friedrich-Wilhelm Schnurr released this album of solo piano works by Bach, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Mozart and Schubert in 2014 as a benefit for a children's music project at the Otjikondo School in Namibia. But it's the music, after all, that counts: the octogenarian's piano playing sounds youthful and powerful, gripping and tender as Schnurr drapes these great small piano pieces with a singing tone and a broad colour spectrum.

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!
