This is the debut album from Jesús León, one of today’s most exciting lyric tenors. He presents a selection of his favourite bel canto arias, uniting three giants of 19th century Italian opera: Donizetti, Bellini and Verdi. The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra under Toby Purser accompany León on this dramatic and expressive programme that reveals all the sweetness, lightness and flexibility of his voice.

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!
