"Just when we're thinking there really is nothing new to say about Brahms's symphonies, things start getting interesting again ... I certainly enjoyed the finale of No. 4 enough to feel like joining in the applause at the end."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... (on Symphony No. 3) the cellos sound ravishing in the Allegretto and so does the solo horn that comes later. The finale is fast enough to be tremendously exciting, most notably in the cutting string figures that end the exposition, here sharp as knives."
- MusicWeb International

"The LPO has long been London's finest Brahms orchestra and it is from this tradition that Jurowski appears to have created his own sound palette, dark-hued but finely lit, with that precise 'terracing' of wind, brass and string sound without which no Brahms performance can hope fully to succeed."
- Gramophone

Vladimir Jurowski concludes his series of Brahms's four symphonies with this live recording of the final two symphonies, taken from concerts in October 2010 and May 2011. The Guardian hailed Jurowski's Symphony No. 4 as "a performance of colossal proportions"; a work that saw Brahms looking back to his idols Bach and Beethoven for inspiration, creating a masterpiece whose extraordinary passacaglia finale, based on a Bach cantata, sums up the composer’s symphonic mastery.

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!
