Digital Booklet
"The colour, the elegance and the sheer beauty of tone in his singing are truly exceptional ..." - The Guardian "... Kaufmann certainly sounds virile, with a dark, husky tone ... he throws himself with gusto into arias ... he also brings nuanced dynamics and phrasing to a repertory not known for its subtlety." - The New York Times This compilation from world famous tenor Jonas Kaufmann showcases the unique quality of his award-winning recordings of best-loved Italian operatic repertoire by Puccini and other composers. Including some of Kaufmann's greatest roles captured in resplendent Decca sound, the album features a duet with soprano Renée Fleming on Puccini’s La Rondine. Many of these tracks were previously released on Kaufmann's 2010 album Verismo Arias.

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!
