"I have played this more than half a dozen times and have on each occasion increasingly marvelled at the sheer rightness of Jurowski's judgment regarding colouring, dynamics, texture and tempo ... an extraordinarily sensitive and nuanced account ... this recording is a triumph."
- MusicWeb International

"Jurowski ‘hears’ everything but better yet the reasons for everything. His precipitous way with tempo contrasts creates moments of high drama in the outer movements, as does his understanding of Mahler’s very particular orchestration. The LPO strings are on fire in the opening of the finale ... has the second theme ever felt so naturally, honestly phrased? ... if ever there was a case for wanting the roar of applause, this is it."
- Gramophone

Recorded live in December 2010, this opening chapter of Mahler's spiritual autobiography is presented in stunning sound quality by Vladimir Jurowski and the London Philharmonic Orchestra as part of their cycle of Mahler symphonies. The performance restores the symphony's original serenade-like second movement Blumine, removed by Mahler after negative criticism.

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!
