Digital Booklet
"... outstanding performances apparently recorded with a single microphone which provided a very well-balanced sound ... Doráti whips up an orchestral frenzy, everything under control, very well played by the Minnesota orchestra ... no other recording approaches the Doráti spectacular. Audiophiles and collectors surely will wish to own this important recording ..." - ClassicalCDReview.com Recorded in November 1954, the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra and Antal Doráti present two of Respighi's most popular and recognized works. The symphonic poem Roman Festivals is the final chapter of the Roman Trilogy; the four movement Church Windows is based on Respighi's own piece Three Piano Preludes on Gregorian Melodies.
96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – Decca/London Studio Masters

Roman Festivals and Church Windows were both recorded on November 20, 1954, on the stage of Northrop Auditorium, Minneapolis, using a single Neumann U-47 microphone and a Fairchild full-track quarter-inch tape machine running at 15 inches per second. The orchestra was placed in normal concert set-up and the microphone kept in one position during the recording. First-generation master tape used for remastering. The pieces were first released on MG50046. Producer: Wilma Cozart Recording Director and Musical Supervisor: David Hall Recording Engineer and Technical Supervisor: C. Robert Fine Remastering: Andrew Walter at Abbey Road Studios in consultation with Thomas Fine and Raymond McGill Cover Design: Eugene Berman

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!
