On their their album devoted to Prokofiev symphonies, James Gaffigan and the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra go back to the composer's first work in the genre, subtitled the Classical Symphony by Prokofiev himself. He stated that his goal was to write a symphony that Haydn or Mozart would have written had they lived in the 20th century. The Symphony No. 5 was composed almost 30 years later, while Prokofiev was living in the Soviet Union in 1944. Although it lacks a programme per se, it is undeniably a depiction of war and victory.

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!
