“Abbado's Ninth is excellent, with very brisk tempos... and fine playing by the Berliners. The singers in the finale are also splendid.”
- Robert Cummings, Classical.Net

“Abbado’s performance is full of... potent drama... and the choir and singers are all top notch...”
- Dominy Clements, MusicWeb International

“a pretty good performance with an outstandingly well realised final...”
- Richard Osborne, Gramophone

Legendary conductor Claudio Abbado and the Berlin Philharmonic join with the Swedish Radio Choir, the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir, and soloists Karita Mattila, Violeta Urmana, Thomas Moser, and Thomas Quasthoff for a world-class performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9. Originally released in 2000, this performance was recorded live at the Philharmonic's own concert hall and stands as a classic yet fresh interpretation of this famous work.

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!
