Piano legends of the 20th-century in the spotlight: after Claudio Arrau, it is now Walter Gieseking to be honored with an complete boxset of his Warner recordings. Guided by his refined intelligence of the score, unrivalled technique, and deep understanding of the new recording techniques, he revolutionized piano performance in the post-war years. This collection of Mozart pieces, scheduled by Walter Legge ahead of the composer’s bicentenary in 1956, is one of the crowning glories of his discography. Here is the fourth volume, dedicated to the Piano Sonatas, K. 279 - 284.

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!
