“Rattle's readings of Dvořák's tone poems set a new standard.”
- BBC Music

These orchestral ballads, directly programmatic and inspired by verbal rather than purely musical stimuli, represent something of a change of direction for Dvořák, away from the Viennese classicism of his idol Brahms and his circle towards a freer, more operatically influenced orchestral style closer to that of Liszt and Smetana. This was deplored by many of Dvořák's more classically inclined admirers such as Eduard Hanslick, who wrote that ‘with this detailed programmatic music Dvořák has stepped on a slippery slope’. More significant, though, was the positive influence these works were to exert on such younger Czech composers as Suk, Novák, Foerster and above all Janácˇek, whose music often reflects the rhythms and intonation of the Czech language, continuing Dvořák's pioneering practice in The Golden Spinning-Wheel.

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!
