Total Playing Time    4:14:29
"I marvelled not only at Maazel’s formidable interpretations but also at the sheer beauty of the orchestral playing and the excellent contributions from chorus and soloists ... Maazel displays his usual grasp of structure and the ability to build tension reminiscent of Toscanini at his best ... the monumental playing of the Philharmonia make for a cataclysmic finale which leaves one totally and magnificently drained." - 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. This installment of the trilogy covers the first three symphonies, including the Symphony No. 3, Mahler's most expansive, with a massive first movement suggesting the awakening of spring, four contrasting middle movements and a slow-building finale. The Symphony No. 2, 'Resurrection' is scored for a vast orchestra, an offstage brass band, two solo singers and massed voices.

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!
