On their label MPHIL, the Munich Philharmonic is opening up its vast archives, giving listeners the opportunity to enjoy one of the richest collections of recordings by legendary artists. Because of the Celibidache era and its part in forming the core essence of the orchestra, the label MPHIL have placed a particular focus on archive recordings under the baton of Sergiu Celibidache. In spring of 2020, it is a recording with Sergiu Celibidache from 1989, which is being made available to audiences around the world: a recording of Hector Berlioz’ Symphonie fantastique. The Munich Philharmonic and Sergiu Celibidache share an exceptional legacy. He started his work as principal conductor in 1979 and remained in this position for as long as 17 years. Sergiu Celibidache played an integral part in making the Munich Philharmonic what it is today: an orchestra of worldwide renown. Today the Munich Philharmonic is critically acclaimed internationally with hopelessly sold out concerts in Munich and the world. Berlioz’ Symphonie fantastique is the successful synthesis of a drama and a symphony. It allowed instrumental music to emerge from the shadows cast by the French operas of the period. Drawing on the resources of a vast orchestra with its hitherto unprecedented musical forces and on a programme that dissects the protagonist’s emotional sufferings in altogether hysterical language, it gives musical expression to the tale of a desperate and unhappy love that left his contemporaries shuddering with raw emotion

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!
