Grammy-winning conductor JoAnn Falletta leads the Virginia Arts Festival Chamber Players, the Virginia Symphony Chorus and a long list of talented vocalists and soloists on three pieces composed at a crucial juncture in Stravinsky's musical life. The Soldier’s Tale, a small-scale theatrical work, is performed here in the suite premiered in 1920. The Octet marked a new element in Stravinsky’s writing, inaugurating a turn to Neoclassicism, while the pivotal Les noces is a ballet cantata impelled by dramatic motor rhythms, saturated in his Russian background.

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!
