Digital Booklet
“If the first movement of the Ninth seems playful rather than sarcastic, Wigglesworth's fine ear for orchestral sonority always brings out unusual elements in the scoring. His insights make this performance and that of the 12th well worth hearing, and an extremely viable alternative to the complete cycles that are delivered under the direction of Kitajenko, Kondrashin or Jansons.” - BBC Music Magazine “Wigglesworth’s long view of where the symphony is heading is a crucial component of this interpretation, but it also embraces a kaleidoscopic variety of character, be it the icy funeral march at the start of the finale, the passages of stirring brilliance in Shostakovich’s orchestral writing, or those moments where the composer seems to be retreating into his own contemplative thoughts. The emotional force is intense.” - The Daily Telegraph “The playing is superbly detailed and the warm orchestral sound brings the Mahlerian similarities very much to the fore.” - The Guardian Performing Shostakovich’s evocative and varied 9th and 12th symphonies, both composed under difficult conditions during the Soviet era, Mark Wigglesworth leads the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra in rousing interpretations of these masterpieces, presenting Shostakovich’s multi-layered compositional style at its best.

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!
