These historic rare recordings date back to 1947 and 1950, featuring Romanian classical pianist and composer Dinu Lipatti. The Chopin performance was recorded in Zurich mere months before Lipatti's premature death from cancer at the age of 33 and underlines why he was considered one of the preeminent interpreters of Chopin. The concert has been remastered in high resolution from a tape copy and a private LP, with wow and flutter removed and pitch corrected. The test recordings from 1947, made for a record company, feature Italian cellist and conductor Antonio Janigro and are taken from 78 RPM shellac records provided by Janigro himself.

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!
