Young award-winning pianist Denis Kozhukhin is backed by the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin conducted by Vassily Sinaisky on this programme of piano concertos by Tchaikovsky and Grieg. Kozhukhin chose two concertos that against all odds, both turned out to become virtuoso warhorses. Until Tchaikovsky started writing his first piano concerto, piano music had only been of secondary interest to him. As he himself stated "... I am inflicting violence upon myself by forcing my brain to come up with piano passages." Nowadays these two concertos rank among the most magical in the piano repertoire and have special meaning for Kozhukhin.

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to record repertoire that has played a significant part in my musical life."
- Denis Kozhukhin

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!
