"Four Stars ... the set vibrates with everything from Latin grooving to sombre Monteverdi reveries to what sounds like an Italian opera version of South African townships jazz. Trovesi has spent a long time working out this huge and musically respectful project and it's clear why."
- The Guardian

"... boldly ambitious ... sometimes melodramatic, occasionally humorous and often sublimely beautiful yet never over-the-top ... thoroughly engaging ... most impressive is how Trovesi has taken snippets from so many sources and joined them together into a seamless programme that's as much a history lesson in Italian operatic tradition and regional music making as it is a piece of music to be taken on its own merits."
- All About Jazz

Italy’s great musical archaeologist and one of the outstanding improvisers of his country, reed player Gianluigi Trovesi indulges in his love for the emotional drama and musical beauty of Italian opera on Profumo di Violetta. The title simultaneously alludes to the protagonist of Verdi’s famous opera La traviata and to the flower’s sweet perfume. Accompanied by the characteristic North Italian provincial banda, a large wind orchestra with percussion, Trovesi embarks on a humorous journey through the history of the genre, starting with Monteverdi’s Orfeo and including many highlights from La traviata before briefly visiting Mascagni and Puccini. The popular and the sublime, irony and unrestrained pathos meet with an improvisational spirit that conveys the pure joy of music making. Trovesi’s opera project will appeal to both opera lovers and open-minded jazz enthusiasts.

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!
