"... thoroughly refreshing and convincing ... these are invigorating performances, with no small degree of poise in Mustonen's pianism and in his handling of the orchestra." - International Piano This is the first of three volumes featuring Beethoven's five piano concertos performed by Olli Mustonen, acting here as both soloist and conductor of the Tapiola Sinfonietta. The Finnish musician is known for delivering fresh, visionary readings of popular standard repertoire music, such as Beethoven's concertos which he had never recorded before. Mustonen has maintained a close relationship with chamber orchestra Tapiola Sinfonietta, accompanying this ambitious recording project with acclaimed tour performances. Also a published composer, Mustonen is playing his own cadenzas in the First Concerto.

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!
