This release comes as part of UMG/Decca's upcoming release of Wilhelm Backhaus' Complete Decca Recordings. Marking 50 years since the passing of Wilhelm Backhaus (5 July 1969), the series brings together, for the first time, the artist’s complete recordings for the label. Wilhelm Backhaus was one of the greatest pianists of the 20th Century and a superlative Beethoven interpreter. On this release, the works of Brahms are featured alongside an appearance of Mendelssohn's "Lieder ohne Worte, Op. 62" as a finale. Included are Brahms' "6 Piano Pieces, Op. 118", "3 Intermezzi, Op.117", and more!

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!
