Pianist Gala Chistiakova produces a stunning programme of Beethoven Piano Sonatas, spanning Opp. 13, 27, & 57. Ludwig van Beethoven wrote his 32 piano sonatas between 1795 and 1822. Although originally not intended to be a meaningful whole, as a set they comprise one of the most important collections of works in the history of music. Hans von Bülow called them "The New Testament" of the piano literature. Galina Chistiakova was born in 1987 in Moscow into a musical family. She started her piano studies at 3 years old with her mother and Professor Helena Khoven. In 1993 Galina successfully entered the Central Music School under the Tchaikovsky Moscow Conservatory. During her school years Galina Chistiakova won many prizes in different international piano competitions, including the 3rd International Chopin Competition for Young Pianists (Moskow, 2000), the 7th European Chopin Competition (Darmstadt, 2002), the 2nd International Piano Competition in Memory of Emil Gilels (Odessa, 2003) and the 3rd Scriabin International Piano Competition (Moscow, 2004). In 2005 Galina Chistiakova entered the Moscow Conservatory and finished it in 2010 with Professor Mikhail Voskresensky.

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!
