"... delightful music, delightfully played ..." - Gramophone "... this is beautiful music and it receives elegant and beautiful performances ..." - MusicWeb International This is the second and final volume in the Comédie et Tragédie project from Tempesta di Mare and consists of suites made up of orchestral excerpts from three dramatic works of the French stage, spanning 73 years, all highlighting the importance of dance as a part of drama. Of note on this programme is Scylla et Glaucus, the only stage work by Jean-Marie Leclair, the foremost violinist of his generation and a composer whose late opera shows the clarity of his orchestration and places its focal point on the strings, as one would expect. Les Fêtes de Polymnie is contemporary with Leclair’s opera but more forward looking in its approach, famous for the ingenuity of Rameau’s colourful orchestration, particularly evident in the overture.

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!
