"... Haenchen obviously is far from a Mahler newbie on the strength of this thrilling performance ... seems to achieve drama through an exciting performance ..."
- Audiophile Audition

"... a very fine recording that offers a splendid performance and a superior mastering job."

Recorded live at the Concertgebouw in 2001 by the Netherlands Philharmonic under Hartmut Haencher, this album features Mahler’s highly concentrated and subtle Fifth Symphony. The work marks the beginning of Mahler’s middle period, distinguished by small instrumental groupings rather than the expansive romantic style of orchestration.

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!
