"... all three works on the disc are cast with flavoursome soloists, none more so than the excellent bass, Franz-Josef Selig...[Königssohn] like all these live performances, is given a bright, immediate live recording, with Kent Nagano and his engineering team judging well the resonance of Munich's Jesuit Church."
- BBC Music Magazine

The essence shared by the pieces presented here, and written by three great romantic composers, is their pictographic language and their intent to inspire the listener’s fantasy. The genre of film was unknown in the 19th century, but back then, the yearning to glimpse into other lives and worlds was no less than it is today. Artists employed narrative art forms which did not offer images as such but rather conjured these up in the fantasies of their listeners and readers. In literature, legends, fairy tales, myths and religious writings served this purpose. To connect different narrative levels and – as we would say today – different media with an emotional component, the artists back then used the same narrative element that also conveys important meanings in todays films: music.

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!
