"... the melodic invention, orchestration and atmospheric variety of these scores completely belies their money-earning inspiration ... vivid recording, compelling performances ..."
- Classic FM

"... will appeal to film music buffs and Shostakovich completists, but deserves to reach a wider audience given the flair and dynamism of the music making and the high quotient of tunes ... Sinaisky is always right inside the idiom, just the man for the job."
- Gramophone

Vassily Sinaisky leads the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra on this second album in their three volume series of Shostakovich's film music. This installment features Romance from the Suite from The Gadfly, a big hit when it was used as the theme for the British TV series Reilly: Ace of Spies.

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!
