"Four Stars ... finds the Philharmonia in fine form ... the recorded sound is bright and spacious, while Maazel sometimes uncovers details of part-writing and orchestration that usually go unnoticed ... (a most successful reading of) Symphony No.1, comparable with some of the best versions." - BBC Music Magazine 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, this performance of the evocative First Symphony was recorded at Royal Festival Hall in London in April 2011.

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!
