"Editor's Choice. Bursting with an energetic, dramatic drive ... an all-round excellent Handel release ... newcomers should start with this throat-grabbing performance.”
- Gramophone

“... Minasi's conducting is second to none, and the work's severity and sensuousness are wonderfully captured by Il Pomo d'Oro. This is one of the great Handel recordings and very highly recommended.”
- The Guardian

"Recording of the Month. The cast is of exceptional and even strength ... (Sabata and Cenčić) deliver brilliant tone and lively fioritura, while the scenes between Sabata and Ainsley crackle with fury ... an all-round outstanding performance ... the orchestral performance is dynamic, the bowing expressive.”
- BBC Music Magazine

Following the recording of several complete Baroque operas, all received with unrestrained critical enthusiasm, Max Emanuel Cenčić once again brings together a fine group of singers and orchestra for the rarely recorded Handel opera Tamerlano. The title role on this 2014 release is sung by the exceptional counter-tenor, Xavier Sabata. Il Pomo d’Oro is an orchestra founded in 2011 with a strong focus on opera, but equally committed to instrumental performance in various formations. Bringing together some of the world’s foremost specialists in authentic performance on period instruments, they form an ensemble of outstanding quality, combining stylistic knowledge, the highest technical skills and artistic enthusiasm.

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!
