"... vibrant, energetic and wonderfully secure playing is supported by a sumptuous recording which fairly wallows in the fulsome acoustic, yet there is no loss of detail in the fast music."
- Gramophone

Conductor Simon Murphy leads his orchestra, the New Dutch Academy (playing authentic instruments) on these performances of early string symphonies by Johann Stamitz and Franz Xaver Richter, the second volume in a two-album series. Murphy has earned a reputation for his special focus on music of the 18th and early 19th centuries, delivering new musical insights, as evidenced on this recording.

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!
