"... marvelously wrought, substantial, beautifully played and instantly memorable. PentaTone's sonics are rich and full, with impressive bass and plenty of inner clarity ... worth hearing on purely musical grounds ... I highly recommend it."

The Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra Amsterdam and Yakov Kreizberg present this programme devoted to Franz Schmidt and his emotionally-charged Symphony No. 4, written by the grief-stricken composer in memory of his daughter who died after giving birth to her first child. The symphony, subtitled Requiem for my Daughter, contrasts sharply with the three excerpts from Schmidt's romantic opera Notre Dame rounding out the album.

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!
