"The performance matches the enterprise of those who have made this premiere recording possible. Maurizio Benini conducts with appreciative understanding of the traditions and his players bring out the full flavour of Mercadante’s imaginative score." - Gramophone Like Mercadante’s stirring Orazi e Curiazi (written in 1846 and also recorded by Opera Rara), Virginia is set in ancient Rome and is half-history, half-legend. Opera Rara, the brainchild of Patric Schmid and Don White, has been in the business of bringing back forgotten operatic repertoire of the 19th-century for over 40 years. Operas once threatened with extinction have now been brought vividly back to life through the Opera Rara recordings.

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!
