"... impressively mounted and recorded in gorgeous sound and production values ..."
- Audiophile Audition

"... a match made in heaven ... Dudamel has all the swagger you might want, and the Berlin Philharmonic plays these bravura works with ease, confidence and mastery."
- The Daily Telegraph

From the opening low notes played by the double basses, contrabassoons and organ, Also sprach Zarathustra inhabits a musical world of its own, a world seeking to question man's place in the universe. This iconic music, brought to life on this 2013 live recording by the Berlin Philharmonic under the skilled hand of Grammy-winner Gustavo Dudamel, resonates with wonderfully crafted orchestral bleedings and textures. Dudamel, one of South America's most impressive musical talents, appears here in his first recording with the Berlin Philharmonic, an orchestra once conducted by Strauss himself.

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!
