"... convincing is his super-articulate launch of the finale, the whole movement splendidly vivid ..." - Gramophone "There’s refreshingly little of the routine here ... the strangeness, the quirkiness of Mahler’s vision are gently highlighted, the whole aided by gorgeously idiomatic orchestral playing full of refreshingly old world sonorities ... there are flashier, noisier, more flamboyant (versions of the Symphony No. 1) around. But this one is excellent and won’t give you tinnitus." - The Arts Desk "... one of the most romantic, ardent and gorgeously played yet controlled Mahler (Symphony No. 1) I’ve heard. The studio recording is terrific. Most openings to this symphony are beautiful, but this one is really beautiful, as exemplified by the dramatic way Luisi takes us to the first theme, which is played with liquidity and interspersed with the sweetest of sweet trumpet commentaries. This is one of the best (versions) out there." - American Record Guide Famed opera conductor Fabio Luisi joins the Vienna Symphony on Mahler's Symphony No. 1, a work that foreshadows many of the hallmark musical features that would reappear on Mahler's later masterpieces. Appropriately, this 2012 studio recording of Mahler's first symphony marks the first release on the orchestra's own record label.

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!
