"Dorothea Röschmann has a deliciously supple and textured soprano that finds glorious colours here."
- Classic FM

"... gloriously sung by Dorothea Röschmann, who has a truly lovely voice and is most sensitively accompanied ... even among many illustrious names, there is no finer recorded performance."
- Gramophone

"Four Stars ... (Röschmann's) fast vibrato is offset by luminosity and soaring beauty ... there's always understanding of the text ... the sunset epilogue, well accompanied by the orchestra, is moving."
- BBC Music Magazine

Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra straddle a musical divide on this 2011 release, namely the Four Last Songs by Strauss. Composed in 1948, these late blooms of unabashed Romanticism stood in the midst of an emerging landscape which featured the Darmstadt School, John Cage’s prepared piano and the first examples of musique concrète. Dorothea Röschmann, one of today’s foremost sopranos, lends her voice to what is often considered an expression of the composer’s acceptance of death’s inevitability. We find Strauss in a completely different mood on the album's opening work, the large-scale symphonic poem Ein Heldenleben, written 50 years earlier. Widely regarded as one of the most brilliant and virtuosic orchestral scores in the history of music, the piece displays the potential of a large symphony to the fullest.

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!
