Digital Booklet
"Fine robust performances of gorgeous music ... the Storionis approach this music symphonically, painting with wide brushes and in bold colors. They achieve a meaty and robust sound that although at times can be quite thrillingly large, is never overpowering. They play with a rich, warm tone that works particularly well with the deeply sonorous writing of the first movement. PentaTone’s sound is magnificent." - MusicWeb International The Storioni Trio from Amsterdam presents this recording devoted to the piano trios of Brahms, following on the heels of the Trio's acclaimed albums featuring Beethoven and Scubert piano trios. The young chamber ensemble shows its mastery of the genre here, demonstrating why the Storioni Trio has become recognized as the leading Dutch piano trio.

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!
