On Tempesta, her first recital album, mezzo-soprano Blandine Staskiewicz ventures into the emotional storms and calms beloved of Baroque composers, notably Vivaldi and Handel, who provided their operatic arias with an intense charge that captivates listeners still. Staskiewicz portrays a fabulous array of moods to match her vocal beauty; her control of the depths and heights of the soul are matched by the instrumental accompaniment from Les Ambassadeurs and its director Alexis Kossenko.

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!
