Mezzo-soprano Mila Shkirtil gets the spotlight on this collection of works by 20th century Russian poet Mikhail Kuzmin. Featuring the Karelia State Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra and Petrozavodsk State University Male Choir led by Yuri Serov, this programme shows Kuzmin's passionate devotion for composition during the first half of his life. His Sacred Songs for Voice and Orchestra, masterpieces of the vocal miniature, are settings of his own words based on studies of ancient Russian music, while The Society of Honoured Bell Ringers displays Mahlerian and Mozartian influences.

This album was mastered using our 2xHD proprietary system. In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original 24bits/96kHz resolution master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier and (if needed) will be EQ’d before being recorded directly in DXD using the dCS905 A/D and the dCS Vivaldi Clock. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable.
DSD and 192kHz/24Bit versions are separately generated, directly from the analog signal.

2xHD Mastering: René Laflamme
2xHD Executive Producer: André Perry

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!
