"Well, well! After three decades, we finally have another great recording of Das Lied. This is a performance for the ages. Make room for it next to whatever other Das Lieds you already own."
- Fanfare

"Four Stars ... sound (is) stunningly evocative and dynamically wide ... anyone grabbing this edition will not be disappointed at all and audiophiles will probably find it in their players more than any other current version."
- Audiophile Audition

The Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra accompanies mezzo-soprano Alice Coote and tenor Burkhard Fritz on this recital of the often-recorded symphony Das Lied von der Erde, consisting of six songs for two alternating singers. It represents a synthesis of the two great pillars in Mahler’s oeuvre, the symphony and the song. Coote and Fritz are the best known soloists for this work, having performed it with top orchestras all over the world.

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!
