"... (Kreizberg) very much takes a concert hall approach to these well known chunks. There is some effusive playing from the Netherlanders and undeniable excitement when the conductor does let rip ..."
- The Telegraph

"Five Stars ... some of the most exciting recorded performances of (Wagner's) instrumental music ... this reading of the The Flying Dutchman Overture will make you realize why the music was once used on the soundtracks of so many movie serials and TV shows. Best of the Year for 2005."
- Audiophile Audition

Conductor Yakov Kreisberg displays his ability to draw raw emotion and power from the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, while balancing restraint and grace, on this excellent recording of a representative selection of Wagner preludes and overtures.

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!
