"... a spectacular First Symphony ... the performance is extremely compelling and boasts an especially powerful and ominous coda ... this is a great performance of a work difficult to pull off ... highly recommended ..."
- Fanfare

"Slatkin fearlessly brings into focus the symphony’s originality ... these are impressive, highly desirable interpretations ... invaluable for the insights they bring so animatedly and poignantly into Rachmaninov’s world."
- Gramophone

"The first thing you’re likely to notice is the transparency of sound. Naxos does a fine job of providing vivid sonics with excellent balance of the various instrumental sections and solo instruments … it’s all great ... the sound really allows you to hear everything and the result is a total package as satisfying as anything on the market ... essential to anyone who loves this music."
- Classical.Net

This is the final installment in an acclaimed series of recordings of Rachmaninov's symphonies from Leonard Slatkin and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. The album features the Symphony No. 1, now considered one of the great Russian symphonic works of the late 19th century. The programme is completed with The Isle of the Dead, a vivid and powerful symphonic poem.

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!
