"... Kodama retains her golden sound and exquisite musical poise throughout even the thorniest of Beethoven’s virtuosic outbursts ..."
- Classic FM

"... there’s much playing of real distinction here, and anyone wanting a high-quality version in state-of-the-art sound won’t go wrong ... I’ll be keeping this in my collection and can see returning to the first and third sonatas."
- Fanfare

Superstar Japanese pianist Mari Kodama dedicated 10 years of her career to performing and recording the complete cycle of Beethoven's piano sonatas, a project that yielded nine albums and made her only the fourth woman to have recorded all of Beethoven's sonatas. On this installment from 2011, she performs the three Op. 10 piano sonatas.

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!
