"... (Böhm's Pastoral) is as fine as any, a beautiful, unforced reading, one of the best played and (in its day) one of the best recorded. It still sounds fresh in its current reissue ..."
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

"These performances never have gotten the credit they deserve ... this Pastoral always has been considered a reference version, with playing from the Vienna Philharmonic that is exceptionally beautiful, interrupted only by that whale of a storm."
- ClassicsToday.com

"... (Böhm's) Beethoven is a compound of earth and fire. His reading is generally glorious and it remains one of the finest accounts of the work ever recorded ... (the Schubert is) a superb version of this lovely symphony, another work that suited Böhm especially well. The recording is splendid. If you admire Böhm this is a worthy way to remember his special gifts."
- Gramophone

This famous 1971 recording of Beethoven's Sixth by the Wiener Philharmoniker under Karl Böhm, now considered a reference, has been called one of the best versions ever recorded and one of Böhm's greatest career performances. On this programme it is paired with Schubert's Symphony No. 5, a 1979 recording which Gramophone praised as a "superb version of this lovely symphony."

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!
