Objects at an Exhibition is a landmark commissioning project, a reimagining of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition for the 21st century. Presented in partnership with British chamber ensemble the Aurora Orchestra and London's world-renowned Science Museum, the album features six world premiere recordings by composers who each selected an object or space in the museum. The composers were given free rein to choose any exhibit, resulting in these works inspired by items such as an 18th century steam engine and the BBC's first radio transmitter.

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!
