"... not only one of the finest on disc, but one of the longest. Abbado observes all the repeats, including the ones usually omitted ... a wonderfully rich and satisfying account of this supreme work."
- The Sunday Times

"Four Stars ... rusticity and irresistible energy ... what his performance conveys most powerfully is the sense of a symphony bursting at its classical seams and pushing its expressive language as far as it will go."
- The Guardian

The late conductor Claudio Abbado was renowned for his love of Schubert; he would conduct the composer's Symphony No. 9 many times during his career. This much-acclaimed live performance was recorded in September 2011 with Abbado's Orchestra Mozart.

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!
