"... the sound captures the very full acoustic of the Rudofinum and its long reverberation time ... it is to the engineers’ credit that little detail is lost ... the audience is superbly well-behaved and very largely inaudible. This is another very welcome release from PentaTone."
- Audiophile Audition

This is the second and final installment in the complete series of Schumann's symphonies from Lawrence Foster and the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. Recorded live in Prague in April 2008 and released in early 2009, the programme features the Symphony No. 3 "Rhenish" and the 1851 revised version of the composer's Symphony No. 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!
