"... balances a realistic concert hall perspective with exemplary sharp focus of detail ... altogether superbly distinctive and well worth adding to your collection even if you already own (other) versions."
- Fanfare

"... compellingly direct accounts that are full-blooded, subtle and finely detailed ... these are remarkably spontaneous, fiery and wholesome performances, which benefit from first-class, audiophile-worthy recording. On its own terms, this PentaTone release sweeps one away."
- International Record Review

"Five Stars ... Pletnev pulls it all together in a way that is convincing, lyrical, tender and downright exciting. The RNO plays with vibrancy and colour ... Romeo and Juliet getting a firm injection of passion and energy that is in no way artificial or contrived, full of splendour and beauty like few others."

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!
