"Four Stars ... riveting performance ... Nicola Benedetti’s best recording to date ... a stunning array of timbres ... an interpretation worthy to stand alongside Oistrakh’s classic recordings."
- The Times of London

Gifted musician Nicola Benedetti explores contrasting Russian violin concertos on this recording of two compositions four decades apart: two different yet connected pieces. Glazunov’s glittering 1904 work is separated from his student Shostakovich’s 1947 concerto not only by 40 years, but also by several landmark events in the course of world history. Benedetti is accompanied on both concertos by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Kirill Karabits.

".. the works on this album are polar opposites in their emotional expression, orchestral colour, formally and technically and reflect the enormous shift in compositional trends during the first part of the 20th century."
- Nicola Benedetti

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!
