Grammy Award nomination - Best Classical Solo Vocal Album, 2016

"... when Netrebko sings, 'I was alone and surrounded by nothingness!' her velvety, aubergine-coloured voice smoulders in genuine 'verismo' emotion."
- NPR

Grammy nominated Russian soprano Anna Netrebko explores some of the darker reaches of the soprano repertoire as she stretches her vocal and artistic range on Verismo. Represented here are arias and duets from Manon Lescaut, Madama Butterfly, Tosca, Adriana Lecouvreur and Andrea Chénier. Antonio Pappano conducts the very talented Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia on the programme, which also features tenor Yusif Eyvazov.

"I believe I have the voice, knowledge and intuition these roles require. And I put all these things together and worked really very, very hard to try to understand verismo and depict it with a real sense of truth."
- Anna Netrebko

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!
