Award winner Richard Danielpour has established himself as one of the most gifted and sought-after composers of his generation. This double album is divided into two distinct parts: the first disc contains the Nashville Symphony Orchestra on Darkness in the Ancient Valley, a symphony in five movements inspired by events in Iran, using a wide range of Persian folk melodies and Sufi rhythms. The second disc features the Pacific Symphony Orchestra performing Toward a Season of Peace, an oratorio exploring violence and war in the name of religion, using the season of spring as a metaphor for change and transformation, leading to peace through forgiveness.

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!
