"Never discursive or splashy, Petrenko’s forensic view of the composer may not please those brought up on Soviet-era music-making but I found it very persuasive." - Gramophone "Petrenko and his orchestra certainly do their best to tease out the teeming, tumbling textures of the First Symphony, but, with Kirill Gerstein as the solo pianist, it’s their performance of Prometheus, one of Scriabin’s greatest achievements, that stands out. It is filled with flickering detail, ricocheting between piano and orchestra, to create the febrile, trill-filled world so instantly identifiable as that of late Scriabin." - The Guardian Once again pairing the winning combination of Gramophone’s 2017 ‘Artist of the Year’ Vasily Petrenko, the Oslo Philharmonic and pianist Kirill Gerstein together, LAWO Classics is delighted to present the last instalment of their critically acclaimed Scriabin Series. Scriabin's first symphony is a “hymn to art”, and was an ambitious first step on his fascinating philosophical journey as an orchestral composer. In “Prometheus”, his last completed orchestral work, choir, orchestra, piano, light, and colour all come together as the “mystic” chord finally resolves into the powerful and consonant major triad – transforming us from the primeval dark of mysticism to the ecstatic enlightenment of a greater awareness. This is intensely beautiful and powerful music, performed with the famously rich and warm sound of The Oslo Philharmonic. Participating on the recording are highly acclaimed soloists Alisa Kolosova (mezzo-soprano), Alexey Dolgov (tenor), and Oslo Philharmonic Choir.

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!
