"... simply masterful Beethoven ... a magisterial account of the Ninth Symphony ... a deeply satisfying musical experience ..."
- Chicago Tribune

"The engineering is excellent, the orchestra and chorus well balanced ... it’s obvious Haitink has rethought his interpretation and the orchestra gives him everything he asks. He deserves credit both for his willingness to study the work anew and for the fine results that he obtains from everyone involved ..."
- ClassicsToday.com

Recorded live in April 2006 as part of their Beethoven symphony cycle, Bernard Haitink leads the London Symphony Orchestra on this performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, a landmark in the history of music that changed the concept of what a symphony could be. The use of solo singers and a chorus in the final movement was revolutionary; the emotional journey to a glorious vision of a world of love and tolerance paving the way for idealistic symphonies to come.

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!
