The symphonies in G minor, K. 550 (no. 40), and C Major, K. 551 (no. 41, also known as 'The Jupiter') are the ones that most represent Mozart's symphonic legacy to later generations of musicians. As early as 1800, the popular 'Great' G minor Symphony was praised as the 'painting of a passion-stricken soul'. Like its big sister, the 'Jupiter' Symphony in C Major, it numbers among the most-played works in classical music and has been immortalized in countless recordings. Nevertheless, these symphonies - probably the most profound ones before Beethoven - reveal themselves as something quite new in every interpretation.

'Mozart placed all the dark sides of human existence into his G minor Symphony', says Herbert Blomstedt, adding that its 'passion' continues to fascinate him.

The eminent Swedish conductor Herbert Blomstedt, a close associate and regular guest conductor of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, conducted the G minor Symphony in concerts on January 31 and February 1, 2013 and the 'Jupiter' Symphony on December 21 and 22, 2017 in the Herkulessaal of Munich's Residenz.

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!
