"Four Stars. The music rolls on like a broad river: stately, unhurried, always certain of its destination ... a fine addition to the cycle; the symphony really goes with a swing and the fill-ups are equally well done."
- Classic FM

"Editor's Choice ... the finest entry yet. The way Alsop and her Baltimore forces ease into that contented beginning to the Sixth and just as quickly assert a sense of musical character to their playing is a sure indicator of what is to follow. An entirely satisfying, characterful account."
- Gramophone

Widely acclaimed for their cycle of Dvořák’s symphonies, Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra present this third volume in the series, devoted to the Sixth Symphony. With this work, Dvořák pays tribute both to his mentor Brahms and to the rich folk music of his Bohemian homeland. The programme also includes the Scherzo capriccioso and the Nocturne, an arrangement for string orchestra of the beautiful slow movement from Dvořák's Fourth String Quartet.

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!
