"Five Stars ... lavishly produced recording ... to be treasured."
- BBC Music Magazine

At the age of 91, pianist Menahem Pressler turns to Mozart's piano sonatas on this album, pieces that offer technical and interpretive challenges that surpass some of those in the "virtuoso" music of the great Romantic composers. This release, the first volume in a projected complete sonata cycle, features three of the composer's most beloved works in the genre.

"It’s a genuine mission to fulfil the task of recording the complete Mozart sonatas. A mission that constantly has me asking questions of myself, and which sometimes has me feeling quite dizzy: can I do it? Am I right to? And yet I feel a literal attraction for these sonatas. They’re an unending source of wonder to me. It’s a joy to record them, and even an inner necessity."
- Menahem Pressler

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!
