Just before his death in 1828 at the age of just 31, Franz Schubert was at work on his 10th Symphony in D major D936a, and had signed up for counterpoint lessons with Simon Sechter, who later taught the young Anton Bruckner. The 10th was destined to become yet another unfinished Schubert work, and his 6th unfinished symphony, but the extensive sketches are fascinating and show Schubert clearly moving into new sound worlds that aniticipate Mahler in the central slow movement. Berio's ingenious work 'Renderings' brings Schubert's extensive sketches alive by creating a new work around and within the framework of the unfinished symphony. Schubert's last completed symphony, his 9th known as the 'Great C major', was completed in 1825-6 and represented the end of a long struggle to produce a 'great symphony' – two unfinished works are its direct predecessors, the 7th in E major (1821) and the famous 8th 'Unfinished '(1822) , both works on an expansive scale. The 9th is remarkable for the rhythmic drive of tiny filigree motifs that multiply and climax, and as Schumann said, its 'heavenly length'. It was in 1839 Schumann came across the forgotten score in the possession of Schubert's brother Ferdinand. Mendelssohn conducted the 9th in Leipzig 11 years after Schubert's death to great acclaim, and it was published that year – becoming the seventh of Schubert's symphonies to appear in print, hence the confusion in numbering whereby in Germany it is known as No.7.

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!
