Grammy Award - Producer of the Year, Classical, 2016

"... the music breathes a stark simplicity and gloomy foreboding typical of (Shostakovich’s) last works, along with an immense expressive power.”
- Chicago Tribune

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Riccardo Muti tackle a pair of lesser known vocal works by two of the 20th century’s most innovative and distinguished composers, Schoenberg and Shostakovich, recorded live in March and June, 2012 respectively. Schoenberg’s Kol Nidre features the Chicago Symphony Chorus with the renowned interpreter of Jewish music Alberto Mizrahi as the narrator, while internationally acclaimed Russian bass Ildar Abdrazakov is the soloist on Shostakovich’s Suite on Verses of Michelangelo Buonarroti. This album was engineered by Grammy winner Christopher Willis, mastered by Grammy winner Silas Brown and produced by Grammy winner David Frost.

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!
