"Rostropovich's grand sense of the theatre and his warm, outgoing personality come across in spades ... he gets the members of the Berlin Philharmonic to give a red-blooded performance like no other."
- The Essential Classical Recordings: 100 CDs for Today's Listener

"Rostropovich's triptych of ballet suites is very special. His account of The Nutcracker is enchanting ... the Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake selections are hardly less distinguished ..."
- The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs

Mstislav Rostropovich, known for his affinity for the music of Tchaikovsky, is at his peak conducting the music of his fellow countryman on this album. He leads the Berliner Philharmoniker in stirring performances of Tchaikovsky's ballet suites The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake, all recorded in June 1978.

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!
