This album contains the world premiere recording of Tchaikovsky´s Violin Concerto in its original version, featuring a few different notes and phrasing bowings than what is usually expected. The most obvious audible difference is that the complete second movement is played with mute, while it has become a tradition that the violinist takes the mute off for the second theme and therefore for most of that movement. This was never intended by Tchaikovsky, as the mute gives the slow movement the feeling and sound of intimacy. ECHO Klassik-winning violinist Linus Roth has performed the piece for 20 years and feels confident to record his unique interpretation, accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra under Thomas Sanderling. Also on the programme is Shostakovich's Violin Concerto No. 2, a late work by the composer who at that time was already ill and knew that his life would be soon over. Sanderling was a close friend of his who remembers him well in his late years and as a result the conductor can provide musical insights that only somebody who knew the composer personally can do.

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!
