"... Kodama obviously knows her Beethoven ... her readings are filled with superb technique and tons of emotion. These performances are first-rate throughout ... the sound is absolutely glorious ... truly magnificent ... very highly recommended ..."
- Audiophile Audition

Japanese pianist Mari Kodama is only the fourth woman to have recorded all of Beethoven's piano sonatas. Having started the recordings in 2003, Kodama completed the final piece in 2013. She meets all expectations in the pursuit of these horizons; the idea that an artist can play this music and still introduce a new perspective, as Kodama so often proves with her performances, is astonishing. This 2014 package is equivalent to nine discs and comprises all the previously-released volumes of Kodama's Beethoven cycle.

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!
