Digital Booklet
Rising star soprano Ilona Domnich sings arias and songs from her operatic heroines, including Magda from Puccini’s La Rondine and Rosina from Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia. Renowned Italian baritone Leo Nucci makes a guest appearance on a duet from Verdi’s Rigoletto. Simon Over conducts the Southbank Sinfonia, augmented by many former members who returned to transform the ensemble into a full-sized opera house orchestra. "When the red light came on, we all connected by some invisible thread, all wanting to produce the best music. I absolutely loved the recording. It was an incredible experience; at times it was intoxicating and heavenly because we have beautiful harmony with the orchestra and the conductor.” - Ilona Domnich

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!
