James Gaffigan and Reinbert de Leeuw share the baton on this programme dedicated to two Russian composers. Gaffigan conducts the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra on Shostakovich’s original Violin Concerto No. 1 while de Leeuw leads the same forces on Sofia Gubaidulina's In tempus praesens, a spectacular showcase for Dutch violinist Simone Lamsma who plays virtually from start to finish and barely has a chance to pause for breath. The virtuosity demanded by the work is never an end in itself.

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!
