Pianist Emma Abbate performs a ravishing selection of previously unrecorded Shakespeare Sonnets by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco with former Royal Opera House Young Artist baritone Ashley Riches, making his solo album debut here. These songs contain both the composer's wistful atmosphere and obvious warmth for his native Florence combined with his life-long obsession with William Shakespeare, wonderfully capturing the mood of each of the Bard's masterpieces in miniature.

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!
