"Five Stars ... the playing is committed and beautifully rendered ... the fidelity is excellent ..."
- Audiophile Audition

"... up against zero competition for recorded quality ... these issues so far have been state of the art. That alone is reason to buy them ... the Baltimore Orchestra are very fine, the lyrical nature of Alsop’s direction provide much pleasure when actually listening."
- MusicWeb International

Marin Aslop and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra follow a critically acclaimed recording of Dvořák’s Ninth with this live album from Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore. Dvořák’s most darkly dramatic and passionate symphony, the Seventh, is coupled here with his Eighth, notable for its dramatic contrasts, Bohemian lyricism and a seemingly spontaneous flow of thematic ideas. Audiophile Audition named this one of the best albums of 2011 for both its performances and sonic excellence.
96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – Naxos Studio Masters

Recorded live at Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, Baltimore, USA, from 10th to 13th January, 2008 (tracks 5-7), and from 19th to 22nd March, 2009 (tracks 1-4)

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!
