"... despite the heaviness of the scoring and big block textures of much of the choral writing, Janowski achieves a lightness and transparency throughout ... this flawless performance is of the highest quality."
- Gramophone

"In a judicious paced account Janowski confidently obtains both dramatic and deeply felt playing yet achieves a fresh and strong sense of spontaneity. The admirable team of soloists is well chosen ... with a performance high on vitality and reverence Bruckner is well served by this impressive recording."
- MusicWeb International

This invigorating release follows a highly acclaimed Bruckner symphony cycle from the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and has been equally and lavishly praised. Recorded amid the fine acoustics of Geneva’s Victoria Hall, this album features the renowned Berlin Radio Choir and an excellent cast of soloists on a programme exemplifying outstanding virtuosity and dedication. Bruckner's Messe F-Moll boasts an enormous emotional compass, ranging from deepest inner contemplation to moments of ecstatic jubilation, brought to life wonderfully by conductor Marek Janowski.

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!
