"It began with an impressive new work by John Adams titled City Noir, a jazzy, gritty, sultry and wonderfully inventive 35-minute symphony ... the players already seemed fired by (Dudamel's) energy."
- The Boston Globe

This live performance of John Adams's City Noir was recorded at the inaugural concert by conductor Gustavo Dudamel with the Los Angeles Philharmonic in 2009, when Dudamel took over as the orchestra's music director. The concert, held at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, also marked the world premiere of this work by Adams, commissioned by the LA Phil, that pays tribute to Hollywood film music of the 1950s.

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!
