For classical music lovers

Linn Records is now offering some of the best classical music performances previously released as LPs under the Decca Classics and Deutsche Grammophon labels in hi-res FLAC or WMA file downloads.



Linn's newsletter said: "With a catalogue that reads like a who's who of the classical world, performers whose artistry is beyond compare and home to some of the best recorded music of all time, we are very excited to welcome Decca Classics and Deutsche Grammophon to linnrecords.com.


"It seems only fitting that music from greats such as Herbert von Karajan and Sir Georg Solti is heard in all the clarity Studio Master has to offer. The audio has been remastered at 96kHz in 24-bit stereo from the original analogue mastertapes and sounds, well, amazing!


"The first recordings available in Studio Master are all by conducting royalty: Sir Georg Solti conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Sir Neville Marriner conducting the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Sir Colin Davis conducting the Concertgebouw Orchestra, Herbert von Karajan conducting the Berlin Philharmonic, and a 27 year old Lorin Maazel conducting the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra in the recording which catapulted Maazel to stardom."


More titles will be available soon.
