“[Richard Hickox] draws excellent playing from the orchestra, which has a distinct warmth and timbre of its own… Cheryl Barker is an outstanding Rusalka.” - International Record Review “The young Australian tenor Rosario La Spina is stupendous, far more that just the best Prince ever. Every note from top to bottom has a gorgeous ring, and he sings with passion... his Act II duets with Whitehouse as the foreign Princess are the stuff of operatic legend. She is very good on her own; together they make sparks fly. Not since Pavarotti have I been bowled over by a new tenor.” - Fanfare “British conductor Richard Hickox responds beautifully to the passionate ebb and surge of the score, and draws some luscious playing from the orchestra... Australian soprano Cheryl Barker makes a very touching Rusalka.” - Classic FM Based on fairy stories about water sprites such as Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid, Dvořák's Rusalka is one of the Czech composer's most beloved operas both within his home country and internationally. Recorded live by Opera Australia with conductor Richard Hickox and soloists Cheryl Barker, Rosario La Spina, and Bruce Martin, this magical but dark story features the beautiful Měsíčku na nebi hlubokém (Song to the Moon) aria in which Rusalka implores the moon to convey her love to the Prince.

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!
