Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    8:04:45
This complete recording of all Dvořák's symphonies and concertos with orchestra is an ambitious project of the Czech Philharmonic and its chief conductor Jiří Bělohlávek, who made the recordings progressively over the course of two concert seasons. This 2014 package, the equivalent of six discs, features soloists including renowned musicians Garrick Ohlsson on piano, cellist Alisa Weilerstein and violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann. It has been more than 30 years since the last complete recording of the composer's symphonies by the Czech Philharmonic, made early in the 1980s under the baton of Vaclav Neumann.

"If I were to sum up my impression from the whole project of recording Dvořák's symphonies and concertos, I am happy to say these one and a half years of living with his music have been a truly wonderful period. We have enjoyed it tremendously, have learned a lot and our love for the Maestro has only increased.“
- Jiří Bělohlávek

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!
