"... Helmchen has a noble bearing and a noble sound, shaping lines as elegant and clean as a Greek temple’s."
- The New York Times

"... a genuinely distinguished account of the Schumann concerto, beautifully coloured and phrased, with a lightness of touch that's altogether admirable ..."
- The Guardian

"Four Stars ... Helmchen is clearly a staunch advocate for Dvorák's neglected concerto. There are many things to enjoy in this beautifully recorded interpretation ... both Helmchen and Albrecht give a magnificently assured performance of the Schumann concerto.”
- BBC Music Magazine

Acclaimed young pianist Martin Helmchen is joined by the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg under Marc Albrecht on these refreshingly inventive and innovative interpretations of piano concertos by Schumann and Dvořák.

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!
