This edition of Elisabeth Schwarzkopf comes from Warner Classic's The Complete Recitals 1952-1974.

A reigning soprano of her era, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf (1915-2006) remains renowned for her vocal beauty and elegance and for her acute interpretative insight – above all in the music of Mozart, Wolf and Strauss. Gathering all her recorded recitals of songs and arias, this collection respects the original format of each programme conceived by Schwarzkopf and her husband, the legendary producer Walter Legge. In newly remastered sound, the soprano’s art emerges in all its exquisite refinement and detail.
96 kHz / 24-bit PCM – Warner Classics Studio Masters

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!
