Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    1:22:37
Barry Douglas presents the fourth volume in his highly-acclaimed series of solo piano works by Brahms. Over the four volumes Douglas celebrates and explores Brahms’s works in unexpected and creative ways. Programmed as a standalone recital, the album begins with the monumental Piano Sonata No. 1, a work that Brahms published as his first opus. The influence on Brahms of his predecessors Beethoven and Schubert is obvious, not only in the virtuoso demands on the performer but also in the opening, which recalls both Beethoven’s Hammerklavier Sonata and Schubert’s Wanderer Fantasy.Two other impeccable and impressive works are included here, along with several short keyboard character pieces.

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!
