Thanks to the hard work carried out in cooperation with recording studios as well as an increasing number of music labels (Plus Loin Music, Bee Jazz, Ambronay Editions, Zig Zag Territoires, ECM, Mirare, Aeolus, Ondine, Winter & Winter, Laborie, etc.), Qobuz now offers a rapidly-growing selection of new releases and back catalogue records in 24-bit HD quality. These albums reproduce exactly the sound from the studio recording, and offer a more comfortable listening experience that exceeds the sound quality of a CD (typically \"reduced\" for mastering at 44.1kHz/16-bit). \"Qobuz HD\" files are DRM-free and are 100% compatible with both Mac and PC. Moving away from the MP3-focused approach that has evolved over recent years at the expense of sound quality, Qobuz provides the sound calibre expected by all music lovers, allowing them to enjoy both the convenience and quality of online music.

Note 24-bit HD albums sold by Qobuz are created by our labels directly. They are not re-encoded using SACD and we guarantee their direct source. In order to continue on this path, we prohibit any tampering with the product.

Hi-Res Booklet
And so, after much expectation, the entire set of Schumann’s Symphonies by Simon Rattle has finally been released with Berliner Philharmoniker’s brand new own label. The 2013 live recordings are extraordinarily thorough: Rattle has truly outdone himself. His direction is incredibly clear, and he benefits from a smaller orchestra with a reduced amount of strings. This is a more ‘reasonable’ set up, as it restores balance between the different instruments. This is especially the case in the sections containing a lot of wood instruments, as all too often conductors let the strings drown out all other sounds without worrying about the ‘chamber music’ essence of the symphonies. It is also noteworthy that the fourth symphony is offered in its original 1841 version, which chronologically makes it his second production. The rearranged version of 1851 is thicker, and contains considerable differences in the music itself. This was not Brahms’ preferred version, and so he published the 1841 original version in 1891, just after Clara Schumann had placed the 1851 rearrangement on the market.
