"... boasts lustrous string sound, weighty but clear bass and excellent performances ... listeners will hear how dynamic this recording is, from the well-defined basses and cellos to the natural-sounding violins and winds ... Marco Boni provides bouncy accompaniment, keeps the action moving and achieves nice balances in the 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!
