"... a success in five acts ... (this recording) surely will heighten L’Aiglon’s status. The OSM played with finesse and Nagano was in control of the shadings of the score. Singers were wearing microphones (which suggests) some old-fashioned you-are-there Decca audio."
- Montreal Gazette

Kent Nagano leads the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal on this live performance of the obscure five act play L’Aiglon by Arthur Honegger and Jacques Ibert. Recorded at the North American premiere in March 2015 amid the wonderful acoustics of the orchestra's home, la maison symphonique in Montréal, the OSM is joined by acclaimed soloists including soprano Anne-Catherine Gillet singing the title role and baritones Marc Barrard and Étienne Dupuis.

"We are delighted to announce that L’Aiglon which we will perform in its North American premiere with an impressive cast including great Francophone singers, would constitute (a) recording project with Decca. L’Aiglon has only ever been recorded once, in the 1950s with the technology available at the time. We thought it was important to create a modern recording to serve our public in the context of the 21st century. There is no doubt that the publication of this work in a recording with Decca would be an international event. It is an indicator of the importance of this project."

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!
