“A furtive, playful charm quite unexpected in Rachmaninov.”
- The Independent

Alissa Firsova performs pieces by Sergei Rachmaninov, Elena Firsova and Dmitri Smirnov—all composers that were forced to flee Russia—in an album that beautifully captures the pain of leaving one’s homeland and the wonder of discovering a new one.

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!
