“Barenboim's long association with, and love for, Elgar has effectively made it part of his musical DNA.”
- Gramophone

“Barenboim made this a Gerontius of transcendental splendour.”
- Financial Times

“If anyone can make a case for Elgar outside Britain, and without special pleading, it's Daniel Barenboim, returning to conduct this British composer's works.”
- New York Times

Elgar's oratorio The Dream of Gerontius was not a success at its first performance, but after being praised by Richard Strauss as truly progressive following subsequent performances in Germany in 1902 it began to gain a following. Based on a poem by John Henry Newman, Gerontius is now widely thought to be one of Elgar's best works, and is performed here by the legendary Daniel Barenboim conducting the Staatskapelle Berlin, Staatsopernchor Berlin, and Rias Kammerchor, with soloists Catherine Wyn Rogers, Andrew Staples, and Thomas Hampson.

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!
