"A pianist of unbounding sensitivity." - Gramophone "O’Conor continues to show he’s a master of Beethoven ... under O’Conor’s fingers, the Variations unfolded deliberately one by one like a series of petits fours. Each of the 33 had a distinctive flavour but was clearly interconnected and concocted by the same chef. Indeed, O’Conor’s hallmark sensitivity to balance in voicings ... brought Beethoven’s compositional genius to the forefront." - The Washington Post On this release, John O'Conor features his specialty, the music of Beethoven. Having recorded the complete Beethoven sonatas and concertos, O'Conor became known as a pianist who is carrying on the legacy of Wilhelm Kampff. Now he turns his attention to the composer's legendary, challenging Diabelli Variations.

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!
