"This is a major Strauss release ... an excellent coupling of an increasingly popular orchestral showpiece with an underexposed early Strauss tone poem ... Janowski plays Macbeth for all it's worth and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra sounds great. Macbeth has never been recorded in sound like this ... a 19-minute feast of the young Strauss's raging orchestra ..."
- Fanfare

" ... (a) stirring performance ... the sound Janowski conjures from the Pittsburgh Symphony (especially the low brass) suggests the mountain's craggy massiveness, while the instrumental detail allows us to revel in Strauss' imaginative scoring. There's energy aplenty in Janowski's pacing ... Janowski leads a powerful performance of Strauss' early tone poem Macbeth, again featuring exquisite orchestral playing ... (recording) is demonstration-class, spacious with vivid detail and a rich, solid low end ... an excellent performance ...highly recommended."

This 2009 release from the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra under Marek Janowski features performances of two works by Strauss, rendered in stunning audio quality, called "demonstration-class" by ClassicsToday.com. The programme kicks off with the early tone poem Macbeth before leading into the main attraction, Strauss's epic large-scale and infrequently-recorded An Alpine Symphony.

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!
