Citadel presents Rachmaninoff's Suites I & II, for Piano and Orchestra, performed by Lee Holby on piano, back by the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Jorge Mester, and the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Lawrence Foster! Suite No. 1 in G Minor, Op. 5, is a work for two pianos by Sergei Rachmaninoff. Written in the summer of 1893 at the Lysikof estate in Lebeden, Kharkov, it was initially titled "Fantaisie-tableaux" because Rachmaninoff intended it, as he explained in a letter to his cousin Sofia Satin, to consist "of a series of musical pictures." Dedicated to Tchaikovsky, the work was premiered on November 30, 1893, by Rachmaninoff himself and Pavel Pabst, in Moscow. Suite No. 2, Op. 17, is a composition for two pianos by Sergei Rachmaninoff, written in Italy in the first months of 1901. Alongside the Second Piano Concerto, Op.18, it confirmed a return of creativity for the composer after four unproductive years caused by negative critical reception towards his First Symphony. The Suite was first performed on November 24 that year by the composer and his cousin Alexander Siloti. In contrast to the First Suite for Two Pianos, the work is not based on literature, and its form tends to approach the traditional suite.

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!
