Rhapsody In Blue
George Gershwin; Vienna Symphony Orchestra; Dean Dixon
An American In Paris
George Gershwin; Vienna Symphony Orchestra; Dean Dixon
"[Dixon's] recordings are propulsive and full of life." - Medium African-American conductor Dean Dixon heads the Vienna Symphony Orchestra for this programme of Gershwin works. Dixon was a prolific conductor in his time, whose career often faced roadblocks due to being black. He once defined the three phases of his career by the descriptions he was given: firstly, he was called "the black American conductor Dean Dixon"; when he started to be offered engagements he was "the American conductor Dean Dixon"; and after he had become fully accepted he was called simply "the conductor Dean Dixon".

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!
