"After a few years of delicate estrangement, Bernard Haitink was reunited with the orchestra of which he was chief conductor for a quarter of century, and is now its conductor laureate. It was with the Concertgebouw in the 1960s and 70s that Haitink made his career-defining Bruckner and Mahler recordings, and last November, he chose Mahler's Fourth Symphony as the work with which to mark the 50th anniversary of his first appearance with the orchestra. It is a typical late Haitink performance, perfectly judged and intensely serious - the product of half a century's experience of playing this music. Haitink has never gone in for the radiance and expansive expressiveness that makes Claudio Abbado's Mahler unique, but the way in which he fits everything into the overarching musical scheme is masterly and wonderfully satisfying. It's a worthy tribute to one of the great musical partnerships of recent times." - Gramophone

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!
