Heard on this recording of The Four Seasons are the four rarely recorded sonnets in the original Italian, each divided thrice, reflecting each concerto’s three movements. The 1725 Amsterdam publication indicated which musical passages are representative of which sonnet verses. Various soloists for each of the seasons join the youthful musicians of the European Union Baroque Orchestra.

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!
