This stunning recording of the rarely-performed Symphonia Domestica by Richard Strauss features Marek Janowski’s straightforward conducting and a zesty performance by the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin. The piece, boasting warm, clear sound with plenty of inner details, vividly and intimately illustrates a typical day in the life of Strauss, his wife Pauline and their child Bubi. Die Tageszeiten for male choir and orchestra spotlights the Rundfunkchor Berlin and sets poems by Eichendorff to music in romantic scenes at four times of the day. The choral settings have a captivating harmonic luminosity, melodic simplicity, instrumental finesse and an almost unheard-of sonic serenity.

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!
