Digital Booklet
“I barely finished my first playing of this CD before I began to covet its predecessor, on which Kathryn Stott (with conductor Vassily Sinaisky) plays Kabelevsky’s Second and Third Piano Concertos.” - International Record Review “Beautifully recorded and executed, the new Chandos disc is self-recommending for collectors of Soviet music and/or 20th-century piano concertos.” - Gramophone “This luxuriously recorded follow-up to Kathryn Stott’s fine 2003 coupling of the Second and Third concertos (CHAN 10052) broadens one’s appreciation still further of this most underrated of all Soviet composers… Stott plays both works with compelling flair and imagination, making light of their considerable technical demands.” - BBC Music Magazine “You can’t fault the performances: Kathryn Stott is phenomenal in both concertos, and it’s difficult not to be seduced by the swagger and panache that Neeme Järvi and the BBC Philharmonic bring to the Second Symphony as well. - The Guardian This release completes renowned pianist Kathryn Stott’s cycle of Kabalevsky’s piano concertos with Piano Concerto No. 1 in A Minor, Op. 9 and Piano Concerto No. 4, Op. 19, “Prague”, along with the composer’s Symphony No. 2 in C minor, Op. 19. Known for his works for children and his efforts in music education under the Soviet regime, Kabalevsky’s orchestral works are lyrical and dramatic, perfect fare for Stott’s glittering pianistic style and expertly accompanied by Neeme Järvi with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra.

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!
