"... it is playing capable of bringing to light the dramatic profoundness of the soul ... get close to the refined interpretations full of subtle nuances and you will recognize how deep Leotta penetrated into the heart of the music of Beethoven."
- PIANONews

Italian pianist Christian Leotta presents the fifth and final volume of his complete cycle of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas. A project that began in 2008, the first four volumes of the series included 25 sonatas and were highly praised by the international press, which hailed Leotta as an extraordinary interpreter of Beethoven. This volume includes what is perhaps Beethoven's most popular work for piano, the Moonlight 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!
