"... splendid performances ... the greatness of this music is never in doubt ..."
- Gramophone

"Karajan’s Scottish Symphony is so plausible that criticism may seem pedantic. It is a performance with many beautiful things ... (on the Italian Symphony bows reassuringly slap on strings in a rattling opening movement. An unusually slow third movement deftly alters the balance of the symphony in a performance which ranks with the best."
- BBC Music Magazine

These historic performances of Mendelssohn's "Scottish" and "Italian" symphonies were recorded in Berlin in January 1971 with the Berliner Philharmoniker, part of their highly acclaimed cycle of all five Mendelssohn's symphonies.

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!
