"... Kreizberg conducts really fine performances of these two repertoire favourites ... this Romeo and Juliet is most memorable for Kreizberg’s supremely natural, intelligent phrasing ... this live recording sounds gorgeous ... make no mistake, even without the audiophile credentials the quality of the music making speaks for itself."
- ClassicsToday.com

"... the performances here are rock-solid ... the addition of the Romeo and Juliet Overture makes for a nice programme. Repeated listenings, however, gave me much more of an appreciation for the pace at which Yakov Kreizberg takes his forces through the symphony ... the playing is nothing short of stunning, with a sweet string tone throughout and massive bursts of brass and percussion where appropriate. The Romeo and Juliet is played with bravura and not too syrupy ..."
- Audiophile Audition

Yakov Kreizberg leads the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra on this exciting live recording of Dvořák's classic Symphony No. 9 "New World" paired with another eternal favourite, Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet Overture. Both of these energetic performances were recorded in Amsterdam's Concertgebouw in 2003 in what has been praised by critics as stunning audiophile sound quality.

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!
