"Wagner aficionados will delight in the superb sound and the shimmery conducting ... the soaring music of the woodwinds near the end is filled with both melancholy and nobility ... one is immediately struck by (Margiono's) large, supple voice and pure tone. Her honeyed notes are filled with devotion ... a first-rate singer ... this affecting performance augurs well for the young soprano."
- Audiophile Audition

Dutch soprano Charlotte Margiono takes on the challenge of recording Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder, five songs for voice and piano and one of Wagner's few non-operatic pieces that have endured. She also interprets excerpts of arias including Lohengrin, Tristan und Isolde and Die Walkure, accompanied by wonderful and interpretive conducting by Ed Spanjaard leading the Limburg Symphony Orchestra Maastricht.

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!
