“Muti is the greatest Verdi conductor of our time.”
- Chicago Tribune

"Muti and company do plenty with the rich material here, and succeed in making the Requiem a thoroughly
entertaining work as well as a deeply artistic one."
- Daniel Ross, BBC Music

Verdi's setting of the Catholic funeral mass has become a fixture of popular culture due to the success of the now-ubiquitous Dies Irae. Muti's rich and energetic interpretation makes excellent use of the power and breadth of the Chicago 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!
