"With his full, controlled yet velvety tone (magnificently reproduced by Decca's engineers), his clean yet faultlessly legato passage work (no xylophonic tinklings for him!), he makes the sonatas into fullscale works..." - Gramophone German piano virtuoso Wilhelm Backhaus tackles the Mozart Piano Sonatas alongside the Rondo in A Minor on this masterful legacy recording from Decca! The release comes as part of Decca's 50th anniversary Complete Decca Recordings series for Wilhelm Backhaus. New remasterings showcasing the incredible integrity of Backhaus’s pianism, featuring the landmark recordings of Beethoven – including two Sonata cycles (mono and stereo – the stereo only omits Op.106, not recorded at Backhaus’ time of death); Brahms’ Concertos, Cello Sonatas (with Fournier); and Backhaus’s celebrated 1954 Carnegie Hall recital.

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!
