"In Masterpieces in Miniature, Maestro Michael Tilson Thomas and his orchestra present twelve short favorite pieces by twelve familiar composers, each of the pieces a polished little gem under the conductor and ensemble. Tilson Thomas imbues them with energy, subtlety, refinement, and grace as the occasion demands, and the orchestra plays them with vigor, nuance, culture, and élan always. Together, the conductor and orchestra provide a polish and sparkle to make even the most timeworn of these warhorses sound fresh again." - John J. Puccio, Classical Candor This exquisite new recording from the Grammy Award-winning partnership of Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony is proof that good things come in small packages. Discover charming, wistful, and even haunting timbres in music by some of the world’s favorite composers, as MTT shares his most personal musical memories with you. With an electrifying performance by virtuoso pianist Yuja Wang, Masterpieces in Miniature is a must-have collection of brief but brilliant pieces that will delight casual listeners and aficionados alike.

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!
