After a critically acclaimed Lutosławski album, conductor Krzysztof Urbański continues his collaboration with the NDR Sinfonieorcheste on Dvořák's Symphony No. 9, a work that has always fascinated him. Completing the programme in sharp contrast to the famous symphony is the rare piece A Hero's Song. "It was only when I studied Dvořák's other symphonies that I came to understand the principal characteristic and strength of the Ninth: simplicity. I wanted to dig deeper and so I examined the manuscript and parts used for the New York premiere. There I discovered things that changed my view of it ... the coupling, the rare A Hero’s Song, shows an entirely different side of Dvořák. The way he transforms the initial four note motif to evoke so many varied feelings, from joy to tragedy, shows his immense compositional mastery." - Krzysztof Urbański

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!
