The Thirteenth Symphony is an emotionally wide-ranging work and one of the last that placed Shostakovich squarely in the public arena. Written in 1962 at the climax of his Russian period, it features scoring for bass soloist, male chorus and orchestra, making it among the most Mussorgskian of his works. The symphony attracted controversy through its settings of poems by Yevgeny Yevtushenko, where the poet underlines the plight of Jews in Soviet society. This 2014 album marks the final release in Vasily Petrenko’s series of all 15 Shostakovich symphonies, a cycle that has received huge international acclaim, winning accolades from Gramophone, Fanfare and BBC Music Magazine, among many others.

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!
