"... (Ostrovsky’s) beyond technique, highly expressive and utterly musical, with a warm tone. The superb engineering is balanced, warm and embracing ... here’s the perfect chocolate bath for the traditionalist still open to something new and for anyone with a romantic bias."
- American Record Guide

"This attractive release brings together three violin concertos by lesser-known Russian-based composers. They’re in sparkling interpretations by yet another gifted Russian violinist and a fine conductor ... superior performances from Ostrovsky, Sanderling and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra are reinforced by good sound quality."
- MusicWeb International

The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Thomas Sanderling perform three works by Russian composers showcasing violin virtuoso Sergey Ostrovsky. Mieczysław Weinberg, while not a household name, was highly regarded by Shostakovich. His recently revived Violin Concertino is an arrestingly scored and often bittersweet work which receives its world première recording on this album. Guided by Tchaikovsky’s influence, Anton Arensky’s neglected Violin Concerto is notable for its rich vein of melody and delicacy of orchestration. The Violin Concerto by Julius Conus, romantic in its variety of moods and expression, was once equal in popularity with that of Tchaikovsky.

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!
