Digital Booklet
“[The] Tsar's Bride… thrills with the riding rhythms of Ivan's rapacious followers, the oprichniki; Sinaisky takes it at a spacious but still exciting pace. The gentler but richly-hued aspects of Russian folklore in the tone-poem Legend, derived from Pushkin's Russlan i Lyudmila, Sinaisky captures with sparkle and energy, likewise the dancing, lyrical Sinfonietta on Russian Themes.” - BBC Music Magazine “Rimsky's vivid music gets a rare outing in this exhilarating programme. The familiar Capriccio espagnole is also splendidly presented: Sinaisky's performance is expansive, warmly relaxed… the closing Fandango produces a burst of exhilarating bravura.” - Gramophone This release presents a range of colourful orchestral works by Rimsky-Korsakov, displaying the Russian composer's musical diversity. Performed by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra under Vassily Sinaisky it includes overtures to the operas The Tsar's Bride and Pskovityanka (The Maid of Pskov), as well as the rousing Capriccio espagnol and rarely-recorded Sinfonietta on Russian Themes, Op. 31.

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!
