"Gatti’s perfectionism gives audience a memorable Mahler."
- Mischa Spel, NRC

"Gatti and the RCO coloured Mahler's complex score with masculine lust, touches of theatrical tragedy and an excess of imaginative, predominantly earth-oriented joy."
- Wenneke Savenije, De Nieuwe Muze

Daniele Gatti and the RCO are continuing their Mahler series with an again unconventional and thought-provoking approach to the First Symphony. At the premiere in 1889, the audience was ill-prepared for Mahler’s bold orchestration, but the symphony gradually gained in popularity. The Concertgebouw Orchestra, conducted by the composer himself, gave the Dutch premiere in 1903. Mahler was absolutely delighted, exclaiming, "The musical culture in this country is stupendous! The way the people can just listen!"

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!
