"... the sound reproduction is vivid and powerful ... this must be counted among the more convincing performances available ... Shostakovich mavens will surely want this ..."
- Classical.Net

"... production values are uniformly excellent ... conductor Petrenko makes a distinctive case for each symphony ..."
- Sinfini Music

"... Petrenko and his excellent orchestra unerringly find the tempo and phrasing to illuminate this great if enigmatic work."
- Fanfare

Conductor Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra team up to perform these two widely contrasting symphonies from opposite ends of Shostakovich’s life and career. This is the seventh volume in a stunning series by Petrenko of the complete cycle of Shostakovich symphonies.

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!
