"... warmly recommended."
- Fanfare

"... beautifully captured luxurious orchestral sound with resonance, an admirable sense of space ... these are beautifully played."
- ClassicalCDReview.com

"Four Stars ... PentaTone’s recording producer apparently worked in close association with Kreizberg to capture the infinite colours and dreamy, instrumental flavourings which grace the individual waltzes in this collection. So the snare drum, the bass drum, the zither (in the Vienna Woods), the oboes, the brass, the harp, the flute, the triangle and the cymbal each receive their allotted 15 minutes of musical fame and definition."
- Audiophile Audition

Yakov Kreizberg and the Wiener Symphoniker recorded this collection of Strauss waltzes in June 2004; the album has been highly widely-praised for Kreizberg's interpretations as well as its sonic qualities, described as "dreamy" by Audiophile Audition.

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!
