"This was a top-notch, utterly gripping account, and I loved every hectic bar."
- The Times

"This was a phenomenal rendition which gripped from first note until last."
- Bachtrack

Reuniting with their Conductor Laureate, Vladimir Ashkenazy, the Philharmonia Orchestra present their sparkling interpretation of Rachmaninov's Symphony No. 1, recorded live at the Royal Festival Hall in London. An utter failure at its premiere in 1897, the symphony was reconstructed in 1945 and has since grown in popularity, which will no doubt be aided by the Philharmonia's sterling performance on this release.

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!
