"... utterly remarkable, inspired and inspiring recording ..."
- Limelight Magazine

"... documents her incredible talent ... she is among the foremost interpreters of the piano music of Brahms."
- Classical.net

"... Grimaud turns her thrilling, deeply personal brand of music-making to Brahms ... her playing is sensitive, graceful, and commanding without ever feeling forced ... the Vienna Philharmonic are on fire under the baton of the electrifying Andris Nelsons ..."
- Classic FM

Hélène Grimaud brings insight and passion to the music of Brahms in the second of two live recordings with Andris Nelsons and the Weiner Philharmoniker, released in 2013. Piano Concerto No. 2, written 22 years after the masterful Concerto in D Minor, expands the traditional three-movement form into symphonic proportions by including a fourth movement, making it longer than most concertos of the time.

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!
