"... I am impressed above all by Janowski’s consistency. The variations are once again beautifully turned and the freshness has not been lost."
- MusicWeb International

"The Pittsburgh winds sound absolutely radiant here, while Janowski characterizes each variation with real personality. Pentatone's engineers have done an excellent job capturing the orchestra in a nicely warm acoustic ... I can easily imagine this version becoming a favorite ... this is beautiful Brahms ..."

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!
