"Wow! Move over Stokowski!... It's a blast, and how nice to hear a modern conductor willing to make free with the literal text in this music and simply have some fun going for broke... Sonically these performances remain in a class of their own. The brilliance and realism are simply breathtaking, with a full dynamic range, ideal depth and breadth of soundstage, firm bass, open highs, and a panoramic splendor unrivaled on disc."

This release is a Rimsky-Korsakov extravaganza from conductor Kees Bakels and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, featuring exuberant performances of the beloved Capriccio espagnol, as well as the Tale of Tsar Saltan Suite (which includes the famous Flight of the Bumblebee in its original context) and the tone poem Sadko, which prefigures Rimsky-Korsakov's opera of the same name.

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!
