“Fung's sound was round and full, but never excessive. He demonstrated a wide palette of colors and had full command over the notoriously technically demanding piano part... The third movement was simply divine... Fung immersed us into a world of delicacy and finesse. ” - Crescendo Magazine Even in his youth, the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart always held mysterious power for pianist David Fung. His teachers made it clear that he certainly should study and learn Mozart’s music, but he was not to perform it publicly. Perhaps these directives only increased Fung’s fascination with Mozart, heightening his desire to perform Mozart’s music. In any case, they certainly did not stop him from playing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25 in C Major at the Rubinstein Piano Competition at age 22, where he was awarded the Mozart Prize by a jury comprising Mozart specialists Menahem Pressler and Robert Levin, among others. For Fung, part of Mozart’s appeal comes from the lyricism of his writing. Fung’s mother is a singer, which imbued in him a deep admiration for vocal music. His interpretations of Mozart sonatas are quasi-operatic, full of drama. Similarly, Fung appreciates the range of emotion present in Mozart’s music. “Within four measures, you can hear the entire breadth of human experience,” he says. For this Steinway recording, Fung selected three early Mozart piano sonatas and one much later sonata, which complements the early works and demonstrates Mozart’s evolution as a composer.

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!
