Following his acclaimed Ring cycle, conductor Marek Janowski rounds off his groundbreaking survey of Wagner’s operas with this double album featuring highlights from the entire series. The set contains popular overtures and preludes as well as orchestral excerpts and the previously unreleased Siegfried Idyll, a symphonic poem Wagner wrote for the birthday of his wife. By producing concert performances of the operas in the superb acoustics of the Philharmonie Berlin without the distractions of staging, the nuances and subtleties in Wagner’s scores are clearly articulated on this recording of exceptional fidelity and immediacy.
96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – PentaTone Studio Masters

This album was recorded live at the Philharmonie Berlin, Germany, 2010-2015.

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!
