"The luminous colours and weightless harmonies of the Firebird sit comfortably with the cultured Concertgebouw ... the fragrance of the Ronde des princesses is exquisite.” - Gramophone "Five Stars. It takes an orchestra with the chops of the Concertgebouw to communicate the primitive nature of this score to the max (and) to do it with the fantastic precision heard on this amazing recording. This should prove a fabulous demo for those into hi-res ..." - Audiophile Audition Two of Stravinsky’s important ballet scores are brought together on this fine sounding live album, released by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under chief conductor Mariss Jansons in 2008. The album is drawn from performances of Le sacre du printemps recorded live in 2006 and the 1910 version of L’Oiseau de feu, recorded in December 2007.

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!
