"Recording of the Month. I was entranced from beginning to end by the panache, finesse and imagination ... everything seems to go right in terms of sound, interpretation and playing."
- Limelight

Following his acclaimed recordings of Tchaikovsky's final three symphonies, Valery Gergiev conducts outstanding performances of the composer's earlier works with the London Symphony Orchestra on this live album, recorded in 2011. These works are full of rich expressive melodies for which Tchaikovsky had a natural talent, containing influences of Russian folk tunes, particularly in the Second Symphony ("Little Russian") and the First, which hints at a Russian landscape.

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!
