"Inspired by a satirical poem on a convent parrot corrupted by foul language, Vert-Vert was accused of indecency at its London premiere.

Here Toby Spence is the winsome Valentin/Vert-Vert, adopted as a human pet by schoolgirls Mimi (Thora Einarsdottir), Emma (Ann Taylor) and Bathilde (Lucy Crowe), seduced by the actress La Corilla (Jennifer Larmore) and introduced to booze in the local garrison. Deft ensemble writing and a lickety-split history of dance show the 'Mozart of the Champs-Elysées' at his most charming."

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!
