"Recording of the Month ... enormously invigorating and brilliantly executed performances ..." - BBC Music Magazine "... lucid and beautifully balanced ... really hits the spot." - Sinfini Music "... I like the way these live performances have been engineered and it is refreshing that applause has been removed ..." - ClassicalSource.com This performance was recorded live in November 2012 at Paris's Cité de la Musique. For the first time, Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts the complete cycle of Schumann's four symphonies and delivers a fresh new interpretation that inspires the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. Nézet-Séguin challenges the traditional approach to Schumann’s symphonies with a smaller ensemble, emphasizing the dramatic changes of the works.

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!
