“Kees Bakels… secures phenomenally crisp ensemble from this orchestra of international players than he founded as recently as 1998. It is good to be reminded of the extraordinary brilliance of Rimsky's orchestrating, here wonderfully clarified thanks to the playing; it's never studied or lacking in thrust.” - Gramophone Magazine “The standard of playing recorded here is a tribute to both conductor and orchestra... The subtle and sensitive BIS engineering is absolutely at the service of the music in allowing the dynamic range to make its mark at either end of the spectrum.” - MusicWeb International This release draws together music that Russian composer Rimsky-Korsakov wrote for the theatre throughout a career in which opera featured heavily. Presenting suites from the epic opera The Snow Maiden, the more experimental Pan Voyevoda, and the literary-inspired Christmas Eve, as well as two overtures, this is a stylistically diverse and thoroughly enjoyable jaunt through Rimsky-Korsakov's fantastical dramatic oeuvre, excellently performed by the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and Kees Bakels.

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!
