This album from the Kiev Soloists under Dmitry Yablonsky contains works by Shostakovich transcribed by Rudolf Barshai, whose five transcriptions and arrangements of the composer's works were ambitious and served as a catalyst for many future reworkings of nearly the entire cycle, from string ensemble to full orchestra. Barshai’s transcription of the Fourth Quartet, which concludes this programme, is his boldest and most interventionist, the addition of winds and percussion emphasizing the work’s symphonic dimension.

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!
