"They are big-boned, muscular accounts, magnificently played in all departments... the brooding Fourth best suits the Berliners’ dark sound; and the Third is surprisingly lithe and sprightly."
- The Sunday Times

Simon Rattle is one of the most distinguished Sibelius conductors of our time. Consequently, his recording of all the composer’s seven symphonies, which he performed with the Berliner Philharmoniker in 2015, attracted all the more attention. Rattle's interpretation is “the profound and balanced result, reflected in every detail, of a long-standing exploration of these masterpieces,” as the Neue Zürcher Zeitung wrote, while the Washington Post recognised “an intensity of character ... that no other orchestra can match”.

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!
