"The recording is once again absolutely stunning, brilliant and plushy at the same time, unequaled by another label in this piece."
- The Audio Critic

"No one can approach Reference Recordings' unparalleled sound in this music."
- The Absolute Sound

The Minnesota Orchestra under the direction of Eiji Oue perform a selection of Rachmaninoff's brilliant orchestral music, including the Symphonic Dances, Vocalise and Respighi's excellent orchestration of the Five Ètudes-Tableaux. Critics have called this the best recording Reference Records has ever made and SoundStage! named it one of the best recordings of the year.

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!
