"... played with the Concertgebouw’s phenomenal spectrum of colouring, phrasing and dynamic subtlety ..."
- The Telegraph

"... purely beautiful ... the playing is richly upholstered, with stunning contributions from the solo flute and bassoon in the first and third movements. Even the most overwhelming climaxes ride on a rich carpet of string sonority."
- ClassicsToday.com

"Five Stars ... it’s hard to beat the world famous Concertgebouw acoustic environment ... Jansons’s players are precise and demonstrate a wider emotional range. The RCO is recorded with a closer perspective, which adds to the impact of their performance. The finale is nothing short of breathtaking. Highly recommended!"
- Audiophile Audition

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!
