Celebrated young cellist Alisa Weilerstein presents Shostakovich’s two cello concertos, accompanied by the Bavarian Radio Symphony under Pablo Heras-Casado, in performances recorded live. Weilerstein worked on both these cornerstones of the repertory with legendary cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, for whom the concertos were written and who was a great friend of the composer. Here, she performs the intense, challenging and emotionally suppressed Cello Concerto No. 1, contrasted by the sarcasm and isolation of the Cello Concerto No. 2.

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!
