In anticipation of Friedrich Gulda's 90th birthday, Deutsche Grammophon is relaunching a classic: this Mozart recording has been remixed and remastered using the original multi-track tapes. Friedrich Gulda was connected to Mozart like no other composer. For him, Mozart was “the master of all masters”. There were striking parallels between the pianist and the Salzburg composer: both were celebrated as child prodigies, both were talented improvisers and both provoked with cheeky humor.

The recording with the Vienna Philharmonic, conducted by Claudio Abbado, between 1974 and 1975, is one of the great Mozart recordings and is undoubtedly one of the highlights of Guldas and Abbado's discography.

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!
