Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    2:23:05
"Recorded with period specialists Orchestra La Scintilla with the intention of replicating Bellini's original vocal and instrumental colours, this Norma is a thrilling affair, with Cecilia Bartoli afforded full space to wreak emotional havoc as the titular Gallic druid seer trapped in a web of deceit with the proconsul of the occupying Roman forces."
- Andy Gill, The Independent

Italian mezzo-soprano Cecelia Bartoli leads an impressive cast in this impressive release which presents Vincenzo Bellini's Norma based on the composer's autograph score. With the orchestra playing on period instruments and adopting the standard pitch of 1830s Italy, this is the beloved opera presented with an attention to historical detail. Giovanni Antonini's urgent conducting and the orchestra's stark sound bring a new sense of pathos to the piece.

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!
