The New York Philharmonic’s releases the world premiere recording of Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang’s opera prisoner of the state in a fully staged production directed by Elkhanah Pulitzer. A retelling of Beethoven’s Fidelio, the bold new opera chronicles a woman’s attempt to rescue her husband from unjust political imprisonment. The action unfolds around the musicians of the Orchestra, who are both observers of the story and participants in the prison. The cast features soprano Julie Mathevet (The Assistant); tenor Alan Oke (The Governor); baritone Jarrett Ott (The Prisoner); bass-baritone Eric Owens (The Jailer); tenors Matthew Pearce and John Matthew Myers, baritone Steven Eddy, and bass-baritone Rafael Porto (Guards); and Men of the Concert Chorale of New York, Chorus Master Donald Nally (Chorus of Prisoners).

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!
