This album explores some of Beethoven‘a smaller-scale sonatas - the Three Sonatas, Op. 10, from the first-period; and two works from the middle period (the Sonata Op. 78, in two relatively brief movements, and the Sonata Op. 79, the shortest of the three-movement sonatas. The Piano Sonatas Op. 10, composed in 1796–98, present Beethoven’s urge as a young composer to push the boundaries of already old-fashioned archetypes, in the use of the rondo-sonata form, but also in the quintessentially orchestral writing of the third sonata. The two-movement Piano Sonata in F-sharp major, Op. 78, 'à Thérèse', and the Piano Sonata No. 25 in G major, Op. 79, 'Cuckoo', were both written in 1809. According to Carl Czerny, Beethoven himself considered Op. 78 and the 'Appassionata' Sonata as his favorite. Upon completing the Sonata Op. 106 “Hammerklavier,” he proclaimed it as being one of his favorites. The nicknames of the Sonatas are not originally by Beethoven. Maurizio Zaccaria, begins his musical journey exploring Beethoven’s universe with his complete Piano Sonatas (32 + 4) in an interpretation that is original, explosive, and fully pianistic. The project is recorded on two different Steinways D-274 by sound engineer and producer Alessandro Simonetto (OnClassical), in perfect stereo 88.2x24-bits, using historical microphones.

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!
