"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 Third Symphony, as part of Barenboim's first recording of the complete Beethoven Symphony Cycle. “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!
