“there’s no doubt that [Andrew Litton] has a real feel for this music. That affinity is certainly in evidence here, especially in The Isle of the Dead, which is perfectly paced, texturally transparent, and powerful at the climaxes. The Rock, an early and less characteristic work, also is very beautiful… again a function of intelligent tempo choices and a keen ear for instrumental color.”
- ClassicsToday.com

Featuring Rachmaninov’s symphonic poems The Isle of the Dead, The Rock, and the famous Symphonic Dances, Andrew Litton and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra expertly play with the varied colours and textures of the Russian composer's compositional style in this recording from BIS.

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!
