"The opening of the Fifth Symphony emerges with gossamer delicacy ... the solo wind playing is as sensitive as one could wish ... excellent live sonics add to the tactile immediacy ... this is fantastic."

Marking the beginning of Carl Nielsen’s 150th anniversary year, this recording concludes the acclaimed cycle of Carl Nielsen symphonies by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and its music director Alan Gilbert known as The Nielsen Project. Recorded live in Avery Fisher Hall in October 2014, this album presents the Danish national composer’s last two symphonies, shedding new light on the originally conceived, momentous struggle of the Fifth Symphony as well as the Sixth Symphony and its inscrutable irony.

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!
