"The Ravel concerto is another bundle of energy. I had forgotten how miraculous is the blend and interplay of piano and orchestra and how ecstatically Argerich weaves around the cor anglais restatement in the slow movement." - Gramophone "There is nothing ladylike about the playing, but it displays countless indications of sensuous, feminine perception and subtlety and Abbado's direction underlines that from the very first ... it brings its own special insights." - The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music "Five Stars. Absolutely stunning. These legendary award-winning performances, full of Latin fire and sensuality, capture Argerich at her most charismatically brilliant ... here is concerto playing of miraculous lyricism and whiplashing rhythmic panache, with a rapport between soloist and conductor that’s consistently high-tensioned. Demonstration transfer." - BBC Music Magazine This is a landmark recording from 1967 featuring pianist Martha Argerich with the Berliner Philharmoniker under Claudio Abbado. The two piano concertos by Ravel and Prokofiev on the programme remained staples of Argerich's live concerts for decades and are showcases for her keyboard virtuosity. The album is rounded out with Ravel's solo piano suite Gaspard de la nuit, a 1972 recording.

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!
