Grammy Award nomination – Best Classical Compendium, 2018 – Simon Rattle, conductor; Christoph Franke, producer

"Both [Harmonielehre and The Gospel According to the Other Mary] benefit from the full palette of the Berlin Philharmonic, from powerful lower brass to exquisite wind solos and sensuous strings; the melodic line halfway through Part 1 of Harmonielehre, a symphony in all but name, can never have been more beautifully phrased or recorded. Each performance brings its own special character, even when the same sounds are in question."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Purity of sound, rhythmic precision and attention to detail make this a recording quite unlike any other to date. If there’s no experience quite like hearing Harmonielehre live in a hall, this is certainly a very close second…Petrenko conducts [The Wound-Dresser] with taste and discretion…The luxuriously lifelike sound the engineers have so artfully captured here, and indeed throughout the entire set, gives Berlin the edge. This is a treat not to be missed."
- Gramophone


John Adams is one of the most important musical voices of America. His tonal language is at once unmistakable and of infinite variety. Minimalism mixes with imaginative orchestration and a jazz-inflected spirit to create a cosmos full of energy and colour that constantly reveals new facets. During the season 2016/2017 John Adams has accompanied the Berliner Philharmoniker as composer in residence.

The orchestra performed a wide variety of his works, from the oratorio The Gospel According to the Other Mary and the famous Harmonielehre to more unfamiliar treasures. The concerts were conducted by chief conductor Sir Simon Rattle and outstanding guests: Gustavo Dudamel, Alan Gilbert and Kirill Petrenko. In the course of this partnership, John Adams himself also made his debut as conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker. The design of the edition is by the world-renowned Turner Prize winning artist Wolfgang Tillmans.

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!
