"This is a very worthwhile disc; it has everything ... Ashkenazy and this Finnish band make a terrific team; more, please."
- MusicWeb International

"... these are excellent performances ... Shenyang is a very impressive soloist, comfortable with the language ... the choir sings with clarity and bite and the orchestra plays powerfully ... the engineering is well-balanced and natural ... a valuable addition to the Shostakovich discography."
- ClassicsToday.com

Vladimir Ashkenazy conducts the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra on two dramatic works by Dmitri Shostakovich: The Execution of Stepan Razin and the Zoya Suite, coupled with the Suite on Finnish Themes. Award-winning bass-baritone Shenyang stars on The Execution of Stepan Razin, which captures rich intonations and melodies of the text as the bass soloist and the chorus engage in a multilayered dialogue of this very theatrical work.

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!
