Digital Booklet
"... rather special ... Jordan turns in a meticulously prepared, articulate performance worthy of top honours among the legions of available recordings ... impeccable ensemble and polish, particularly in the strings and winds ... dynamic range is extraordinary ... we are privy to every nuance, so well-captured in every detail." - The WholeNote "Jordan conducts with innate musicality and sound judgement ... his eminently clear-sighted and totally unmannered reading is clearly the result of some meticulous preparation. What's more, he has a lively ear, moulds phrases with imagination and care and draws strikingly alert, personable and beautifully blended playing ..." - Gramophone This 2013 recording features the Wiener Symphoniker and its new chief conductor Philippe Jordan interpreting Tchaikovsky's highly significant work, his last completed symphony. The orchestra has a long and intense history with Tchaikovsky's Sixth, going back as far as 1903. Jordan brings that history full circle 110 years later on this superbly prepared, performed and recorded programme.

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!
