"Bejun Mehta sings Orlando with an otherworldly quality ..."
- Opera Journal

"Mehta brings lively characterisation to the mythical hero's subtle duality ... all is well paced under René Jacobs's direction with a fine contribution from the B'Rock Orchestra.”
- BBC Music Magazine

"Combining histrionic flair, terrific agility and a wide palette of colours, Bejun Mehta rises superbly to its demands. He brings musical inwardness to his opening cavatina and a finely judged balance of pathos, distraction and unhinged fury to the mad scene, singing the final repeat of the gavotte Vaghe pupille as if in a trance."
- Gramophone

A cast recording of La Monnaie’s celebrated 2012 production of one of Handel's greatest operas, Orlando. The cast, led by Bejun Mehta in perhaps his most famous role, reunited with the B’Rock Orchestra and Grammy-winning conductor René Jacobs in the Brugge Concertgebouw to record the work, taking full advantage of the opportunity to make a studio recording. This album features not only the exquisitely honed performances of the ensemble, but also special percussion effects fitting to this most magical of Handel’s operas.

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!
