"... Gatti always draws the ear inwards, past smoochy saxophone and celesta, deep inside those contrapuntal caverns of ecstasy where Berg is even more in his element than Mahler or Strauss.”
- Gramophone

"Four Stars. The recording quality is terrific ... this recording of some quite complex yet approachable music uses the ample acoustic and remains fully transparent ... I heartily recommend it especially to those who have so far thought Berg’s music is a mountain too high to climb."
- Audiophile Audition

Since taking audiences by storm in his first appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in 2004, conductor Daniele Gatti has been a regular and welcome guest with the orchestra. On this 2008 live release, Gatti’s first recording with the RCO, he conducts two key works by Alban Berg: the early Drei Orchesterstücke and the suite from Berg's unfinished swan song, the opera Lulu. Under his baton, both works, which Gatti conducted from memory during these concerts, are given a highly ominous, atmospheric performance.

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!
