"... serious, substantial pieces and it's always good to have the opportunity to hear them in performances that make exactly this point. Warm, clean sonics ... solid, musicianly, certainly not lacking in good ideas about how the music should go."
- ClassicsToday.com

"I found Nikolić's readings to be well thought out and each had a nice progression from first movement to last, each movement adding more interest to lead to satisfying conclusions ... (they) hold up well with repeated playing. The PentaTone sonics have a pleasant transparency on two channel equipment ..."
- Fanfare

"... Nikolić and the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra play with both intensity and charm; there is the sense of live music making in the results ... there are excellent wind and horn solos to be heard. PentaTone’s high resolution recording is very fine ... there is a wide dynamic range, the recording reproducing both the fortissimos and the strings’ pianissimos realistically."
- Audiophile Audition

Violinist and conductor Gordan Nikolić leads the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra on this highly-praised recording of two contrasting Schubert symphonies, noted by several critics for its superb audio quality in addition to performances of the highest calibre.

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!
