"The recording is vivid and atmospheric and one marvels at Bellini's gorgeous melodies ... with Sutherland, Bonynge and all on electrifying form.”
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

The powerhouse combination of Joan Sutherland, Luciano Pavarotti and conductor Richard Bonynge recorded several important operas during the 1970s. This 1973 recording of Vincenzo Bellini's last opera I Puritani with the London Symphony Orchestra is considered one of the best versions available and possibly Pavarotti's finest recording.

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!
