"Editor's Choice ... a remarkable disc from a Russian firebrand, up there with the big guns ... (Jurowski demonstrates) an analytical coolness and forward propulsion that both quicken the pulse and engage the brain. A most satisfying disc by a still-growing, major talent."
- Gramophone

"Five Stars ... great sounding ... the instrumental soundstage is wide and deep, the ambient air and bloom around the instruments give results in superb transparency. The orchestral climaxes are exciting and clear ... the Russian National Orchestra plays brilliantly throughout this wonderful disc. Don’t miss it!"
- Audiophile Audition

This is one volume in a series of Shostakovich symphonies the Russian National Orchestra recorded under various conductors; young maestro Vladimir Jurowski leads the orchestra on the two works contained on this release, called one of the best high-resolution albums of 2006 by Soundstage!.

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!
