Grammy Award nomination - Best Classical Solo Vocal Album, 2016

Czech mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kožená, considered one of the foremost singers of her generation, teams up with renowned period instrument orchestra La Cetra led by Andrea Marcon on this programme devoted to the early Italian Baroque music of Monteverdi. Kožená is joined by soprano Anna Prohaska for a pair of duets and several other acclaimed guest performers are featured.

"... I think once you've sung Monteverdi you've learnt something you can use in contemporary music and the other way around ... somehow I feel most at home in this repertoire."
- Magdalena Kožená

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!
