“Dmitri has a Rachmaninov attack in his soundtrack for The Unforgettable Year; Martin Roscoe swoons with pianistic passion; and the Hamlet Suite shows Shostakovich at his wittiest.” - Classic FM Magazine “The Chandos issue will appeal to film music buffs and Shostakovich completists but it deserves to reach a wider audience given the flair and dynamism of the music-making and the high quotient of tunes. As I observed last time round, Sinaisky is always right inside the idiom, just the man for the job.” - Gramophone “One must praise the high standards of the series by Maestro Sinaisky and the BBC Players – and the rich, dark, room-filling sound captured by the Chandos engineers.” - American Record Guide “once again Sinaisky handles [Shostakovich’s film music] with scrupulous fidelity to every shifting mood.” - BBC Music Magazine This unique and exciting recording project from conductor Vassily Sinaisky and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra sees Shostakovich’s film scores made accessible to a wider audience. Featuring the only available recording of the The Young Guard Suite, this release provides lovers of Shostakovich an a chance to hear the composer’s playful creations for the silver screen.

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!
