"Page and his young musicians have a real feeling for Mozart, and the excerpts ... are artfully chosen to make the best case for early Mozart ... the emotional intensity of the great Idomeneo quartet is a bombshell.”
- The Sunday Times

"My personal pick this year is the Classical Opera Company’s glorious The A-Z of Mozart Opera, which is fresh, diverse, insightful and illuminating (everything that such recital anthologies usually fail to be) ... uniformly superb interpretations ... an auspicious debut recording of intelligence, finesse and quality.”
- Gramophone

The A-Z of Mozart Opera is the debut album from Classical Opera originally released in 2007 and selected for Gramophone's annual Critic’s Choice that year. Based on the coincidence that Mozart’s first opera (Apollo et Hyacinthus) begins with "A" and his last (Die Zauberflöte) with "Z," this 2014 re-release takes the listener on a chronological journey through Mozart’s operatic canon, featuring an aria or ensemble from 15 of his operas. Classical Opera was founded in 1997 by conductor Ian Page to explore the works of Mozart and his contemporaries, and has emerged as one of the leading exponents in its field. Performing with its own acclaimed period instrument orchestra, the company has attracted considerable critical and public recognition, not only for the high quality of its performances but also for its imaginative programming and its ability to discover and nurture outstanding young singers.

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!
