Beethoven wrote his only ballet score in 1801, between his First and Second symphonies; the theme from the overture provided the subject for the finale of the Eroica Symphony and Eroica Variations. Based on the Greek fire-stealing myth, the story of The Creatures of Prometheus is conveyed with music full of drama and verve, interpreted on this 2014 release by Armonia Atenea playing period instruments conducted by its Artistic Director George Petrou. Armonia Atenea is the new international name of the Athens Camerata, founded in 1991 with the inauguration of the Megaron, the Athens Concert Hall.

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!
