Through his friendship with longtime collaborator, pianist Howard Lubin, tenor Salvatore Champagne became fascinated with the work of Italian composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. This led to 15 years of research, during which Champagne discovered the composer's Shakespeare Sonnets which had never been published. Champagne also unearthed a song cycle on texts from Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass; this album makes these intimate and beautiful pieces available to a wider audience for the first time.

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!
