“Everything he tackles… is a success, regardless of whether it is Beethoven, Brahms, Schoenberg, or Stravinsky.”
- Kolner Stadt-Anzeiger

No composer’s reputation has been as inflated into myth as that of Ludwig van Beethoven, and there are good grounds for this. As the ultimate definer of classical music, he perfected the models of his predecessors Haydn and Mozart with a hitherto unknown intellectual and artistic consistency, with the consequence that he wrote fewer works than these two, but his were longer and weightier and crowned by the nine symphonies. At the same time, his intense musical language (often disturbing for his contemporaries) heralded the age of Romanticism. This release of his complete symphonies features the interpretation of the WDR Sinfonieorchester and conductor Jukka-Pekka Saraste, who has established himself as one of the outstanding conductors of his generation, demonstrating remarkable musical depth and integrity.

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!
