"I've always loved this recording for Sokolov's untrammeled, personalized pianism and a kind of freedom that seems fueled by creative inquiry rather than unfounded, willful eccentricity. The pianist revels in the music's unpredictable mood swings while illuminating its harmonic and contrapuntal inspirations like an astronomer who can't wait to share his latest planetary discoveries. A truly absorbing release."

Legendary Russian pianist and recluse Grigory Sokolov presents this live concert recital of Frédéric Chopin's works, originally recorded in 1990 and rereleased in 2010 to mark the 200th anniversary of Chopin's birthday.

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!
