“From the bold chords that launch Schubert's A major Sonata, D959, we were plunged into a world in which the piano shed its percussive qualities and transformed itself into a symphony orchestra, where accents had impact without harshness and where the composer's large-scale landscapes were unveiled with a rare inevitability.”
- Financial Times

Legendary Polish pianist Krystian Zimerman presents a definitive recording of Schubert's Piano Sonatas Nos. 20 and 21 on this release for Deutsche Grammophon. A musician who records rarely, Zimerman's delicate interpretations of some of the last works Schubert wrote before his early death are sure to be treasured.

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!
