"... the Boston Symphony in amazing form ... especially rewarding ... (interpretation is) intense ... a cornerstone of any serious Liszt collection."
- ClassicsToday.com

Leonard Bernstein so loved Liszt's Faust Symphony he recorded it twice, probably the only conductor to have ever done so. The first time was in the 1960s, followed in July 1976 with this performance showcasing the Boston Symphony Orchestra at its best; musicians obviously inspired by the legendary maestro and his conviction. Tenor Kenneth Riegel and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus join the BSO on the album, called "the reference recording of the work" in a review by ClassicsToday.com.

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!
