Nareh Arghamanyan is not only one of the most technically resourceful pianists of today’s generation, but her interpretations, her rich, colourful tone, combined with an exceptional storytelling gift enable her to present something remarkably unique and precious. Prokofiev’s intricate, complex Piano Concerto No. 3 is a work that calls for the utmost virtuosity, traits equal to the level of gregariousness necessary for a successful traversal of Khachaturian’s concerto, with its spicy harmonies and colourful orchestration. On this recording the pianist is accompanied by the Berlin Radio Symphony conducted by Alain Altinoglu.

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!
