Three star mezzo-sopranos and a wonderful contralto present this recital, bringing to life the rich heritage of Baroque opera, the pinnacle of musical enjoyment and the entertaining element of cultic stardom alike. With tongue-in-cheek humour, present-day prima donnas Vivica Genaux, Mary-Ellen Nesi, Sonia Prina and Romina Basso follow in the footsteps of their passionate predecessors, accompanied here by celebrated Greek orchestra Armonia Atenea under conductor George Petrou, winner of Germany’s prestigious ECHO Klassik Award. Extra spice is added by the fact the these present-day divas also perform arias that, in the Baroque era, were the province of male singers.

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!
