"The Previn I would now count the most desirable of all CDs of this work, both on performance and recording... it is cleaner than any with the firmest placing and a realistic perspective, which gives far more depth to the sonic stage from front to back than there is in either the Karajan or the Solti recordings. The brass sound in particular is rich and thrilling (try ''Uranus'', which is spectacular), and the fading of the offstage chorus into silence at the end of ''Neptune'' is the most atmospheric of any, even more natural-sounding (not just an engineer operating a fader) and more protracted than even Gibson's..."
- Gramophone

Recorded Sept. 28-29, 1973, in Kingsway Hall, London and engineered by Christopher Parker. This definitive version of Holst's Planets is a reference for new performers and lovers of the piece.

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!
