"... Fagioli's sound is sweet and rich ... (he) swoops from chesty tenor up to soprano and back again (sometimes in one breath) and he fills out Gluck's lines with rich vibrato and plenty of ornamentation ... a beautiful and dramatic performance ..." - The Times of London This live recording contains highlights of two versions of Gluck’s Orfeo et Euridice performed by an all-star cast featuring countertenor Franco Fagioli in the title role. Conductor Laurence Equilbey leads period instrument orchestra Insula and chamber choir Accentus on both the 1762 Vienna version and the 1774 Paris version of the score. Fagioli is joined by sopranos Malin Hartelius and Emmanuelle de Negri on this album which marks Fagioli’s first complete recording of an operatic title role. "It is a great honour to work with Deutsche Grammophon. I am delighted with Orfeo ed Euridice and look forward to many other projects in the future." - Franco Fagioli

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!
