"Mustonen creates a savage case for an unduly neglected sonata ... his superhuman agility allows him a freedom unknown to lesser pianists ... Mustonen is no less remarkable in Tchaikovsky's Seasons, scorning their gentler, more domestic virtues."
- Gramophone

This recital from Olli Mustonen features Rachmaninov's seldom-performed first Piano Sonata, coupled with Tchaikovsky's The Seasons, a popular cycle of 12 intimate miniatures. Mustonen is known for delivering a fresh and visionary approach to standard repertoire, his glittering piano sound and technique faithfully rendered in superb audio quality on this 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!
