Swedish mezzo-soprano Ann Hallenberg ventures wholeheartedly into the musical mind of castrato Luigi Marchesi at the turbulent and revolutionary end of the 18th century in a vivid recreation on this recording. Joined by the Stile Galante and conductor Stefano Aresi, the programme is enhanced not only by meticulous attention to the original instruments and ensemble configurations used by orchestras accompanying Marchesi, but by access to some 200 contemporary accounts of the singer’s music making. Luigi Cherubini's aria appears on this album twice, with two entirely different sets of original ornaments.

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!
