Grammy nomination - Best Classical Solo Vocal Album, 2015

"... the works on this recording represent the core of an extraordinarily rich collection

Cecilia Bartoli presents St. Petersburg, a majestic album of world premiere recordings, hidden treasures of the Mariinsky! For the very first time, the acclaimed mezzo-soprano explores the Baroque musical treasures of Tsarist Russia with music from the court of three 18th century Tsaristas: Anna, Elizabeth and Catherine the Great. With music written by Italian and German composers working for the Russian court, this Grammy nominated album sheds new light on an incredible and momentous time for Russia, shaping its politics and culture towards the enlightened West. Mostly sung in Italian, the recording also offers the first opportunity to hear Bartoli sing in Russian. Intricately researched by Bartoli herself, she uncovers music lost for over 200 years. This album reunites Bartoli with Baroque specialists Diego Fasolis and I Barrochisti.

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!
