"These performances of (the Bachianas Brasileiras) easily are the finest available. The São Paulo Symphony Orchestra certainly ought to know how to play this music and do they ever! You’ll be amazed at how effortlessly the strings articulate the hellish motor rhythms ... even if you know these works well, it’s like hearing them for the first time ... conductor Roberto Minczuk shapes a performance quite similar to that on the composer’s own EMI recording, albeit with infinitely greater sound and much, much better playing ... sonically this is stunning in terms of dynamic range and timbral splendour ... a very impressive effort by all concerned."

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!
