Digital Booklet
"Four Stars ... Hickox's conducting emphasizes the score's modernist elements without losing sight of its wonder, its magic or its wit. Ensemble values are high among the cast ... it's all hugely entertaining ..." - The Guardian "Hickox and his Australians have a ball throughout ... the recording somehow captures all the sparkiness of live performance without the usual excessive dryness of an opera house acoustic ... crucially, the chorus and orchestra sound as fully engaged as the soloists themselves ... for the most instant enjoyment, the new issue will surely score highest for native English speakers." - The Gramophone Classical Music Guide Richard Hickox leads the Opera Australia on the world premiere of Tom Stoppard's English version of Prokofiev's The Love for Three Oranges, recorded live at the Sydney Opera House in February 2005.

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!
