Digital Booklet
It says much for the Berliner Philharmoniker's enlightened programming that it can present a feast of performances of John Adams' music, recorded in a single season (2016–17) under a host of top conductors. John Adams’s role in the course of his residency with the Philharmoniker was not only as a composer, but also as a conductor. For his debut at the helm of the orchestra, the programme included the Adams classic Harmonielehre. Other conductors also appear in this edition: Gustavo Dudamel with the atmospheric nocturnal scene City Noir, and Alan Gilbert with the exhilarating miniature Short Ride in a Fast Machine.

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!
