"... Alsop has the measure of the symphony’s structure, dramatic pacing and emotional content, drawing a bright sound from the players, goading them into firm rhythmic propulsion and drawing out rich strands of string sound seasoned with the acerbic harmonies and instrumental clashes that lend the symphony such a powerful impulse." - The Telegraph This fourth volume in Marin Alsop’s acclaimed Prokofiev symphonic cycle with the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra features two of the composer's most viscerally exciting works. Using material salvaged from his opera The Fiery Angel, the Third Symphony was hailed at its 1929 premiere as "the best symphony since Tchaikovsky’s Sixth." Originally commissioned as a ballet but rejected as undanceable, the Scythian Suite has become a popular orchestral showpiece, while Prokofiev retained a lifelong fondness for his dark-hued early symphonic sketch Autumn.

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!
