The Road of Promise represents a concert adaptation of Kurt Weill's 1937 opera-oratorio The Eternal Road. Performed by members of the New York City-based performing arts organization MasterVoices, under the baton of Ted Sperling, this pseudo-allegorical work was conceived by European Jewish emigrants in the US as an attempt to inform the American public about Adolf Hitler's persecution of German Jews. The storyline is set in a synagogue on a night of fearful waiting during the "timeless night of Israel's persecution." The Rabbi comforts his congregation by recounting for them iconic stories from Jewish scripture. These biblical scenes unfold through spoken dialogue, arias, ensemble pieces, and a chorus, and bounces between the Rabbi's "present day" conversations with his congregants and dramatizations of different Torahic stories. A particularly interesting aesthetic facet of The Road of Promise is the use of references to popular music in the dramatizations of Torahic stories. Latin-esque rhythms in At the Mountain, from Act 1 and Ruth the Moabite from Act III, demonstrate the seemingly motivated choice by Weill to draw clear parallels between the plight suffered by Jews in these stories and the situation in late-1930's Germany.

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!
