"Muti drew out the radiant beauties in the (Lélio) score, performed with total commitment."
- Chicago Tribune

This double album from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and conductor Riccardo Muti was recorded live in September 2010 at Orchestra Hall and produced by Grammy winner David Frost. The Berlioz programme includes the Symphonie fantastique and its rarely-recorded sequel, Lélio, narrated here by French actor Gérard Depardieu, also featuring tenor Mario Zeffiri and bass baritone Kyle Ketelsen.

"Symphonie fantastique was not intended to be a showpiece to end a concert. Instead, Berlioz meant it as the prologue to a deeper and more intense work. Audiences do not often hear these two works together and I think it will be a revelation for them ..."
- Riccardo Muti

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!
