"... you'll hear these seminal pieces anew. The recording is that good." - Audiophilia.com "... these are works that provide conductor and musicians with a spectrum of atmospheres and colours into which they can sink their respective teeth. Stern and his orchestra do so to captivating effect ... turn the volume up to gain the full impact of this searing performance." - Gramophone "... the label triumphs again with a well-themed, superbly played and spectacularly recorded disc of masterpieces. What these forces may lack in star power, they more than make up for in all-out passion and commitment ... deserves a home in the library of anyone who loves 20th century music." - Classical.Net The Kansas City Symphony presents three classic modern masterpieces by Hindemith, Prokofiev and Bartók. Conductor Michael Stern's interpretations of these great works are captured here in brilliant sound by Grammy-winning engineer Keith O. Johnson, produced by four-time Grammy-winning classical producer David Frost.

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!
