"Four Stars ... the set is beautifully engineered and the presentation immaculate ..."
- The Guardian

"... orchestral execution is beyond reproach. The high-resolution audio is superb, as usual for this label. If you’ve started collecting PentaTone’s Wagner, there’s no reason to stop now. "
- Fanfare

"Five Stars. It has spontaneity of something which has sunk so deeply into the performers' minds and souls that they can throw caution to the wind and still be accurate ... (if Janowski) continues like this, it will unquestionably be the finest modern traversal on disc of Wagner's achievement."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... the first benefit that strikes the listener is the quality of the recorded sound. It’s crystal clear with strong extremities but inner transparency ... well worth picking up. It’s admirably performed with excellent sound ... a worthy modern successor ... the finest release in this Janowski/Wagner series so far."
- MusicWeb International

A live four-disc set recorded at the Berlin Philharmonie in April 2011, this is the third volume in the highly-acclaimed Wagner series from Marek Janowski and the Rundfunkchor Berlin. This project is unique in that it marks the first time Wagner's 10 major operas have been recorded with the same orchestra, choir and conductor.

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!
