“No matter where you test Abdrazakhov in this recital, you touch the robe of genius.”
- Lynn René Bayley, Fanfar

“As the forlorn and mysterious Demon wandering the heavens searching for the warmth of human love Abdrazakov’s aptitude for characterisation is fiercely evident. Worthy of esteem is his exquisite legato and capacity for vocal colouring... Constantine Orbelian ensures tautly controlled and well paced tempi from the Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra capably supported by the splendid Kaunas State Choir.”
- Michael Cookson, MusicWeb International

Primarily known for his performances of Italian and French repertoire, award-winning Bashkirian bass Ildar Abdrazakov wows with Power Players, a vibrant collection of arias that see him revel in the rich offerings for basses in the Russian repertoire. Including famous arias from operas by Glinka, Borodin, Tchaikovsky, and more, Abdrazakov is at the height of his powers in this unique collection of performances.

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!
