"This is playing of extraordinary quality and character and a fine partnership between soloist, conductor and orchestra ... recorded in outstandingly clear sound ... I was enchanted by this release."
- International Record Review

"... an acoustic well suited to Mozart, with a nice halo of resonance ... helps those legato lines and subtleties of dynamic and phrasing which make the simplest-seeming of music so effective."
- MusicWeb International

"... beautiful performance of two of the composer's liveliest concertos ... crystalline pianism throughout, with splendid accompaniment from the fine Dutch orchestra and conductor Nikolić. Well-balanced audio, with natural balance between soloist and orchestra are another plus."
- ClassicalCDReview.com

Martin Helmchen made his recording debut in 2007 with an album of Mozart piano concertos; in the intervening six years his international career and reputation have flourished. He revisits Mozart with this companion recording, accompanied by Gordan Nikolić and the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, the same conductor and orchestra he played with on his debut.

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!
