"I'd have to have this with me on a desert island. It's one of the best examples of a master getting to grips with a popular work and recreating it anew: it's sensational." - BBC Music Magazine These two performances by Grammy-winning Russian pianist Sviatoslav Richter are now considered reference versions of the Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky concertos. Recorded in 1959 and 1962 respectively. Stanislaw Wislocki leads the Warsaw National Philharmonic Orchestra on the Rachmaninov; Herbert von Karajan and Wiener Symphoniker accompany Richter on the Tchaikovsky.

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!
