Digital Booklet
Acclaimed Korean violinist Moonkyung Lee joins the London Symphony Orchestra under Miran Vaupotić on this recording of beloved Tchaikovsky selections, featuring the Violin Concerto in D Major. Elevating several of the work’s unorthodoxies to the foreground, her bow breathes new life into the unusual cadential sections in the first movement, its song-like second movement and the Russian folk-infused finale. The album also includes the Méditation, originally written as a middle movement for the Violin Concerto before its inclusion as the first movement of the Souvenir d’un lieu cher. Its nostalgic mood is quintessential Tchaikovsky and its subsequent popularity has led to presentations on its own. For this programme, Lee and the LSO have chosen Glazunov's 1896 arrangement for violin and orchestra. Finally, the violinist seizes the Sérénade mélancolique, Tchaikovsky’s first piece for violin and orchestra, filled with the intense emotion intrinsic to so much of his music.

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!
