"There is much about this recording to commend. It offers good audio, a competent and committed orchestra and a scherzo which has a good balance between momentum and gravity ..."
- MusicWeb International

"... an interesting and rewarding performance ... turns out to be very satisfying ... if you're looking for a fresh if slightly strange view of this strange symphony, this well-engineered production deserves your attention."

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!
