"... an exciting interpretation of this great Berlioz work ..."
- Audiophile Audition

"... (recording) is superb. The balance throughout is truthful ..."
- MusicWeb International

"The two overtures are excellently played, both benefiting from Slatkin’s familiar skill at clarifying orchestral textures."
- Gramophone

Leonard Slatkin conducts the Lyon National Orchestra on this 2013 live recording showcasing Berlioz's Harold en Italie, intended for the great violinist Paganini who, having initially rejected the work, later repented and gave it his highest praise. Also included are the brilliant concert overtures Benvenuto Cellini and Le carnaval romain, among Berlioz’s most popular works, as well as the elegant Rêverie et Caprice featuring violinist Giovanni Radivo, the composer's only work for solo violin and orchestra.

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!
