Bulgarian composer and conductor Emil Tabakov prefers to write for large forces and counts nine symphonies to his credit. Like Mahler, Tabakov’s symphonies explore the darker side of the human spirit in epic scores as austere as they are powerful, as showcased here by the Bulgarian National Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Tabakov himself. On the atmospheric and expansive Symphony No. 8, the dynamism suppressed in the first two movements is released in a cathartic discharge of energy in the finale. The ebullient Five Bulgarian Dances, receiving their world premiere, provide a complete contrast, taking Balkan folk rhythms as the basis for their intense vigour.

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!
