"... the work has its moments and gathers strength as it proceeds. Indeed, the closing scene is very impressive. The singing of principals and chorus is of a high standard, as is the playing of the Haydn Sinfonietta and the direction of Manfred Huss."
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

"(The music) is extraordinary ... happily, the cast here is very strong ... Huss has found firm, pleasant voices all around ... there are no weak links at all. The scoring: flutes, oboes, bassoons, horns, timpani and strings, is quite colourful too ... this vividly recorded release gives the fullest picture of this genuinely moving work."
- ClassicsToday.com

Manfred Huss, the Haydn Sinfonietta Wien and an impressive cast of soloists are joined by a choir and two respected German actors in spoken roles on this 2009 release of Haydn's Philemon Und Baucis, a work that for too long has only been a footnote in the composer's literature and discography. The opera was written for marionette theatre, a highly popular form of mass entertainment in 18th century Vienna. Haydn wrote six such marionette operas; of these, Philemon Und Baucis is the only one to have survived more or less intact, although not in the original version. This recording is based on a later revision which included orchestral intermezzos by other composers, in accordance with the standard practice of the time.

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!
