"... Maazel’s control and concern for clarity of texture bring the wonder of this music superbly to life. It is difficult to imagine a more atmospheric and tonally beautiful performance ... (leaves) no doubt of the greatness of this symphony and of Maazel’s interpretation." - ClassicalSource.com In 2011, conductor Lorin Maazel recorded the complete cycle of Mahler’s nine symphonies live with the Philharmonia Orchestra and a star-studded ensemble of performers; the nine symphonies to be divided among three box sets. Sadly, Maazel died before the third set would be released in 2015. Now available individually, the Symphony No. 3 features Sarah Connolly (mezzo-soprano), the Tiffin Boys' Choir and the Philharmonia Voices. This symphony, Mahler's most expansive, is a hymn to the natural world, with a massive first movement suggesting the awakening of spring, four contrasting middle movements and a slow-building finale.

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!
