Total Playing Time    11:03:11
"Among the finest discographic achievements of the tragically short-lived Hungarian conductor István Kertész was his landmark stereo cycle of the Dvořák symphonies with the London Symphony. For anyone who loves this composer’s music, the Kertész compilation is self-recommending; it is still the best traversal of the symphonies, with not a single performance or recording that is less than outstanding."
- The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection

This nine album box set contains acclaimed recordings the London Symphony Orchestra made in the 1960s under István Kertész. More than 50 years later, these performances of Dvořák's symphonies, his Requiem and other pieces remain benchmarks.

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!
