"Here is Pollini in all his early glory, in performances expertly transferred from 1976. Pollini’s magnificently unsettling Chopin can be as imperious and unarguable as any on record. That his performances are also deeply moving is a tribute to his unique status."
- Gramophone

Maurizio Pollini devoted much of his professional life to Chopin; over 35 years he has recorded Chopin's entire output and earned a reputation as one of the best, if not the best, interpreter of the composer. This album of selected Polonaises comprises recordings from 1975 and 1976, including Chopin's significant Polonaise-Fantaisie.

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!
