"There is a real partnership with Bohm and the orchestra and, again, qualities of line and control which have to be described as masterly. In some of the slow movement Backhaus sounds perfunctory. In the finale, however, he plays with abundant personality and authority. There, and perhaps especially in the first movement, you notice that he is not averse to modulating the movement's basic tempo from time to time, always with purpose. There is a little decoration, done with conviction, but none in the places where you might most expect it. In sum, a far from bland interpretation of the Concerto..." - Gramophone German piano virtuoso Wilhelm Backhaus performs Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 27 and Piano Sonata No. 11 with the backing of the Wiener Philharmoniker under the direction of Karl Böhm. The Piano Concerto No. 27 in B♭ major, K. 595, is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's last piano concerto; it was first performed early in 1791, the year of his death. The Piano Sonata No. 11 in A major, K. 331 / 300i, was likely composed in Vienna or Salzburg by around 1783, although Paris and dates as far back as 1778 have also been suggested.

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!
