This is the latest installment in Andris Nelsons' and the BSO's complete Shostakovich Symphony cycle on Deutsche Grammophon, a two-disc set, pairing live performances of the composer's Symphonies 4 and 11 ("The Year 1905").

Each of these works has a unique political backdrop: the premiere of the gargantuan Fourth was delayed a quarter-century due to Soviet authoritarianism, and the dramatic Eleventh was written to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution.

The previous releases by Maestro Nelsons and the BSO - Symphonies 5, 8, 9, and 10 - won the 2016 and 2017 Grammy Awards for Best Orchestral Performance.

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!
