"... fine sounding, sensitively paced ... with good, fairly chaste choral singing and an especially impressive baritone in Thomas E. Bauer ..."
- Gramophone

"The Warsaw Philharmonic Choir, highly capable of the most subtle gradations of tone, is always here the centre of creativity, creating the music’s existential continuum and arising to sombre unexpected splendour ... there is some beautiful orchestral playing ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... (the choir) sings beautifully throughout ... Libor and Bauer are excellent singers and the orchestra is also first-class ... Wit conducts with considerable insight and interpretative command ... recording quality is equally first-rate."
- International Record Review

"... (orchestra and choir) outdo themselves, with some especially fabulous singing that is worth the price alone ... Wit uncovers all sorts of wonderful details in the low strings and winds ... attention to dynamics, especially in the singing, is simply tremendous. This is really moving ... both heartfelt and rewarding."
- Classical.Net

Antoni Wit and the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir follow their successful recording of Brahms choral music with this highly praised presentation of the longest work in Brahms’s entire oeuvre, A German Requiem. Baritone Thomas E. Bauer and soprano Christiane Libor are the featured soloists on this emotional composition, triggered most likely by the death of Brahms's mother and inspired by the death years earlier of his friend Robert Schumann. Taking inspiration from Bach’s contrapuntal genius but avoiding overt religious tradition, Brahms chose the texts himself, placing an emphasis on an affirmation of life.

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!
