"... simply masterful Beethoven ... capped by a magisterial account of the Ninth Symphony, this is the Beethoven set for our time. Even if you already have umpteen other recordings of these works, you really owe it to yourself to hear this new set ..."
- Chicago Tribune

"Five Stars. If superb sonic reproduction is your first criterion, this set wins hands down. It’s amazing how uniformly accurate the LSO players are considering these are all live performances ... these are brilliant interpretations, with a feeling of great energy and thrust not found on many Beethoven symphony recordings ... there is a wonderful flow to the interpretations ..."
- Audiophile Audition

Beethoven redefined what a symphony could be. He gave his works a dramatic narrative and emotional intensity that sent blood flowing through the veins of music and set the tone for Romanticism in music. Many of the symphonies have their own journeys; from darkness to light in the Fifth Symphony, from death to rebirth in the Eroica, or from a bleak void to a glorious vision of love and tolerance in the Choral Symphony.

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!
