This is a reissue of a stereo recording made in December 1961 at Mozart Hall in Vienna and originally released by the Westminster Recording Company, a cult classical music label that earned a well-deserved reputation among audiophiles for the superior sound quality of its albums. Hermann Scherchen began his long association with Westminster in the early 1950s and the recordings he made for the label established his name internationally. This digital-only release was transferred from the analogue source into the digital domain at 24-bit using high end equipment and without any further manipulation apart from a slight declicking. As a result, the digital data medium fully retains the warm, atmospheric analogue sound of the original source.
96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – Archiphon Studio Masters

This album is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue recording. It may be limited in bandwidth and dynamic range by the technology available at the time of its original creation, and is offered as a high-quality documentation of a historical 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!
