The complete Warner recordings by Claudio Arrau, newly remastered in high resolution and including various premieres, have been released both in physical and digital formats! One of the greatest figures of the 20th-century, Arrau excelled particularly in the great romantic repertoire, and notably Beethoven whom he performed intensely on record, but also on stage (sometimes playing the complete sonatas in a row during legendary concert series). Warner now issues the 1957 recordings of the last sonatas, including a previously unreleased version of the thirtieth sonata!

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!
