Siberian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky returns to his Russian roots and the traditions with which he grew up while reprising some of his favourite parts, trying new ones and introducing a diverse group of complicated, colourful and relatively unfamiliar characters. The album, made in Moscow over five consecutive days in October 2015, features scenes and arias from five operas by Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein. Some of these roles have never been performed by Hvorostovsky on stage, while other numbers have either never been recorded by him or were recorded long ago. The remarkable outburst of creative energy during those five days brought out an entirely new vocal palette in Hvorostovsky's already outstanding singing. "Some of the most meaningful roles I’ve sung, some of my favourite new roles. Good friends, good colleagues." - Dmitri Hvorostovsky

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!
