"Rostropovich's emotional and sonic power in this classic 1968 recording has never been bettered."
- BBC Music Magazine

"This remastered Rostropovich coupling is technically very successful and the balance of the recording demonstrates far more perceptive engineering than many recent digital issues. The background is almost silent ... the Rostropovich/Karajan partnership is an inspired one and these are great performances. Musically this is in a class of its own."
- Gramophone

Dvořák great Cello Concerto is paired with Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations on this 1968 recording from the Berliner Philharmoniker under Herbert von Karajan. Mstislav Rostropovich, one of the greatest 20th century cellists and at his peak here, joins the orchestra on both works in performances that have set the standard over the years.

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!
