"Stunning virtuosity." - Classic FM "... superb performances ..." - The Guardian "... long been acknowledged as one of the finest versions of Chopin Etudes." - ClassicalSource.com "... provided more passion, more colour, more drama, than my wildest dreams ... Pollini's flexible rubato, combined with a lovely cantabile tone, maintained my interest and twanged that all-important heartstring ... blessed with a beautifully clear and vivid sound." - BBC Music Magazine Maurizio Pollini earned international recognition following the 1973 release of this album, one of the pianist's first for the Deutsche Grammophon label and still considered among the greatest recordings of these Chopin pieces ever made. BBC Music Magazine called this "the perfect performance."

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!
