Recorded in Minneapolis in November 1954, Antal Doráti and the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra present this classic educational piece from Benjamin Britten, the composer's best known work. It is paired on this programme with Alberto Ginastera's Variaciones Concertantes, which was practically brand-new at the time of this performance.
96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – Decca/London Studio Masters

This title is a high-resolution digital transfer of material originating from an analogue recording. The musical material contained within is limited in bandwidth to approximately 13 kHz by the technology available at the time of its original creation, and is offered as a high-quality documentation of a historical release.

Ginastera’s Variaciones Concertantes and Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra were recorded on the stage of the Northrop Auditorium, Minneapolis, on November 20, 1954. This music was recorded onto a Fairchild full-track quarter-inch tape machine running at 15 inches per second using a single Neumann U-47 microphone. The microphone was maintained in constant position throughout — about 15 feet above and slightly behind the conductor’s head — and the orchestra was seated in normal concert performance set-up. The first-generation master tape was not available for CD remastering, but a good-quality dub tape was present in the archive and was used. Originally released as MG50047.

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!
