Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony deliver an unforgettable live performance of the original 1910 version of Stravinsky’s ballet The Firebird, recorded in 2014. It is paired on this album with Russian composer Vladimir Nikolaev’s thrilling tribute to Seattle’s own Jimi Hendrix, The Sinewaveland, recorded in concert in 2011.

"... (Jimi Hendrix) was my idol already during my school years! I listened spellbound to his albums, which were accessible in the USSR only on the overused reels. I learned to play the guitar by listening to his recordings. His music combines spontaneity, lack of restraint and improvisational approach with well-composed forms, refinement and accuracy of details. It may seem unusual, but my path into serious music opened up with rock music rather than Mozart or Beethoven."
- Vladimir Nikolaev

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!
