"... (the Russian National Orchestra) plays beautifully ... a rich and colourful sound ... the excellence of the orchestral playing, conveyed in vivid, transparent sound provides much satisfaction. The violin solos are beautifully and sensitively handled ... stereo sound is bright, clear and spacious, with gratifying impact and depth ..."
- Fanfare

"... offering highly refined playing and care over many telling details in Rimsky-Korsakov’s fragrant Arabian Nights tale Scheherazade. Ponti gives the music plenty of time and space, a relaxed alternative to the usually urgent point-making more commonly heard in this luxurious work ... the solo playing is especially good and the reading coheres enjoyably ..."
- Winnipeg Free Press

The Russian National Orchestra presents sumptuous performances of three works by Rimsky-Korsakov on this 2011 release, conducted by Carlo Ponti Jr., the son of Carlo Ponti and Sophia Loren. The RNO is joined by remarkable violin soloists Tatiana Porshneva on the Scheherazade and Alexei Bruni on the Capriccio Espagnol.

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!
