"... a huge achievement ..."

"... (testifies) to Karajan and Mutter's unique partnership and artistic gifts ... Mutter really does possess a wonderful tone and even at this early stage she proved entirely worthy of the music. And the Philharmonic is glorious, a reminder of how great this orchestra could sound ... Karajan and Mutter really did create some tremendous music together and the results do everyone proud. If you don't own (this), you ought to ..."

One of the earliest of many classic collaborations between four-time Grammy-winning violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter and Herbert von Karajan, this 1985 album also vividly illustrates why the Berliner Philharmoniker is considered one of the world's greatest orchestras.

"Karajan taught me very early to analyze the score and, specifically in the Beethoven Violin Concerto, to see myself as part of the whole."
- Anne-Sophie Mutter

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!
