Pianists Iiro Rantala, Michael Wollny and Leszek Mozdzer are at the forefront of this project to resurrect the 70-year-old vision of late jazz impresario Norman Grantz. In 1944, Grantz decided the best place for a jazz concert would be in a classical music hall and created the original Jazz at the Philharmonic series of live shows, which endured for 20 years. A new concert series held in the Chamber Music Hall of the Berlin Philharmonic is continuing Grantz's groundbreaking idea. For the first time in its 25 year history, the Berlin Philharmonic Kammermusiksaal was completely sold out for a jazz concert, with an audience of 1200. This live recording from that inaugural concert in December 2012 captures the three pianists as soloists, in duos and as a trio, proving that jazz can break down the rigid old borders between "serious" and "entertaining" music. They showed an audience of largely classical fans that, in no uncertain terms, classical and jazz are anything but opposites.

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!
