"Barenboim’s Beethoven symphony cycle is the most emotionally complete, humane, and perfectly realized series of non-period-instrument performances of this music to have appeared in decades [...] Barenboim’s achievement clearly demonstrates that a wonderful tradition is alive, vital, and still capable of renewal through intelligent understanding expressed in partnership with a like-minded orchestra, and above all, through supreme musicianship on the podium. His encounter with this music’s generosity of spirit and deep passion will provoke, stimulate, challenge, and delight." - ClassicsToday.com General Music Director Daniel Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin present Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, as part of Barenboim's first recording of the complete Beethoven Symphony Cycle. On this recording, Barenboim and the orchestra are joined by soprano Soile Isokoski, mezzo-soprano Rosemarie Lang, tenor Robert Gambill, and bass René Pape, along with the Chor der Deutschen Staatsoper Berlin under chorus master Eberhard Friedrich. “I waited a very long time to record the Beethoven symphonies…I waited for the music to mature in me – or me in it – and to find an orchestra that not only did what I asked it to do, but which really felt every detail in the music exactly as I did at the moment we were playing it…This is the greatest joy that a conductor can have.” – Daniel Barenboim

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!
