"Flor paces the music through to its ultimate stasis with unerring control ... (there's) little to fault in the playing of the Malaysian forces or the wide-ranging sound." - International Record Review "You have a definite sense of a charted terrain, with subtle shifts of pace as the scenery changes ... the finale (of the symphony) is powerful ... Othello in particular is superb and the Malaysian Philharmonic play brilliantly throughout." - Gramophone "The polished-sounding Malaysian Philharmonic keeps its cool surprisingly well under the circumstances, maintaining good ensemble throughout. The string sonorities have a nice sheen. The woodwinds play with transparent tone and phrase sensitively; the brass are firm and solid." - MusicWeb International Following highly acclaimed releases devoted to Smetana and Josef Suk, Claus Peter Flor and his Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra turn their attention to Dvořák, the logical next step for the team, who present the Seventh Symphony, considered by many as one of the greatest of them all. With its strikingly sombre and impassioned tone, often said to reflect the composer’s sorrow at the death of his mother, it was an immediate success. The symphony is followed by two later single-movement orchestral pieces, for which Dvořák found inspiration in literary sources. The model for the concert overture Othello is, of course, Shakespeare, while The Wild Dove is based on an epic poem by Czech poet Karel Erben.

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!
