"Alsop and her players handle the great climactic moments with elan ... (the vibrant Waltz Suite) really swings, with some stylish solo playing in all sections of the orchestra." - The Guardian Marin Alsop directs the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra on Prokofiev's Symphony No. 6, composed in the wake of World War II, revealing the composer's dark response to war and its consequences. The symphony's ending has been described as “one of the most shattering in the repertoire." With themes both capricious and sensuous, the Waltz Suite recycles material from earlier scores to create a remarkably effective quasi-symphonic entity, rounding out this wonderful programme recorded in Brazil in April 2015.

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!
