"... (Levine's) great affinity for the piece was obvious throughout ... a gripping, spacious account of what is certainly the most enigmatic and arguably the most heartfelt of Mahler’s symphonic works. His control of speeds was always masterful. Tempos were never rushed and tension never failed as the varying moods of the work were sharply contrasted. The virtuosity and superb ensemble playing of the BSO musicians were impressively demonstrated throughout all four movements of this challenging work ... (a) sharply focused, altogether compelling performance." - ClassicalSource.com James Levine leads the Boston Symphony on a work he knows very well, Mahler’s tragic Symphony No. 6, recorded live in October 2008 and released to great acclaim four months later.

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!
