"Utterly magical. A real artist of distinction. You can't get better than this."
- Classic FM

“He brings a shining and sweet tone to these works, but also taut muscularity and a sense of overall structure.”
- NPR Music

"By sculpting each phrase so inventively, Kavakos rivets your attention and at times gives the impression that he's improvising ... this is a fine modern Brahms violin concerto ..."
- ClassicsToday.com

"... (an) exceptional performance ... Riccardo Chailly and the Leipzig Gewandhaus are a glory, rich-toned but translucent and supporting violinist Leonidas Kavakos's purity of tone and inspired phrasing at every step. Kavakos's violin tone is super-refined and elegant."
- BBC Music Magazine

Leonidas Kavakos is recognised across the world as a violinist and artist of rare quality, known at the highest level for his virtuosity, superb musicianship and the integrity of his playing. This 2013 release showcases Kavakos's interpretation of the Brahms concerto with Brahms specialist Riccardo Chailly conducting the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. Kavakos's playing here is characterized by a rare blend of analytical insight and refined virtuosic bravado. Kavakos plays the "Abergavenny" Stradivarius of 1724.

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!
