Digital Booklet
"... remains an amazing performance of Mahler’s most difficult symphony ... offers one of the most cogent and contrapuntally dazzling accounts of the finale yet conceived ... absolutely nails the closing chorale, effortlessly. It is very gratifying to see a performer treating this music with the care and caution it deserves, particularly when the results turn out to be nothing less than stellar. This may not be your only Fifth, but it must be one of them." - ClassicsToday.com Conductor Herbert von Karajan was obsessed with getting this performance perfect: he reportedly rehearsed for two years and worked on it over seven sessions. The extensive preparation paid off: this 1973 recording with the Berliner Philharmoniker has become a benchmark for the Mahler symphony and an essential addition to the collection of any Mahler fan.

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!
