"This is compelling music making with sonics to match."
- American Record Guide

"Kun Woo Paik's particular qualities are best revealed in the most popular, tuneful and elegant of these concertos, the Third ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Kun Woo Paik’s playing throughout these concertos has exhilarating bravura. Tempi are dangerously fast at times and occasionally he has the orchestra almost scampering to keep up with him but they do and the result is often electrifying ... with vivid recording this set is enormously stimulating ..."
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

Award-winning conductor Antoni Wit leads the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra on this 1992 release of Prokofiev's Piano Concertos Nos. 1, 3 and 4. Virtuoso Korean pianist Kun Woo Paik, the soloist on this album, performed all five Prokofiev piano concertos in Poland with the PNRSO and recorded them immediately following the concerts. The Piano Concerto No. 1 is scored for a full orchestra, its percussion section augmented unusually by tubular bells.

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!
