"No wonder the juiciest bad guy in classical music has sparked the imagination of so many composers since. This aptly angst-filled album includes stylish string arrangements ..."
- The Guardian

The Tallinn Chamber Orchestra and Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir perform contemporary compositions inspired by the very influential 16th century composer Carlo Gesualdo, Prince of Venosa, as well as new arrangements of his work. Gesualdo's highly charged, mannerist and idiosyncratic vocal works are amongst the most experimental and expressive music of its period and continue to invite reinterpretation and modern responses such as those found on this album.

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!
