Digital Booklet
"... a reminder of what a fine Mozartean she is ... wonderfully stylish in the extracts from the early opera serias ... she’s a very fine, intelligent artist and Ivor Bolton and the Salzburg Orchestra accompany her most sympathetically." - The Guardian "... Piau sings delightfully, with fresh, pellucid tone and keen dramatic understanding ... Piau brings each of these women, amorous, vulnerable and/or tormented, to vivid life ... many of the numbers here give unalloyed pleasure ..." - Gramophone French soprano Sandrine Piau revisits Mozart in this recital of tragic arias from her favourite heroines in the composer's operas including Le Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni and Il rè pastore. The recording features the orchestra of Mozart's city, Mozarteumorchester Salzburg and its renowned music director Ivor Bolton. "... a recital disc is a sort of personal diary that lays bare your choices and your interpretations. A gallery of characters like this one gives a singer a range of emotions that she doesn’t get to tackle in a complete opera." - Sandrine Piau

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!
