"We are used to good CD recordings but this one seems to have it even more right than usual. Congratulations to technical guru Frédéric Briant for his efforts in producing a spacious and detailed sound in which the voices seem to be just out there in front of the listener ... great notes, great packaging: a winner!"
- MusicWeb International

Johann Christoph Pepusch’s English-language masque Venus and Adonis, inspired by the operas by Giovanni Battista Bononcini and Alessandro Scarlatti, bristles with Italian virtuosity and dynamism. Unlike most English-language dramatic music of the time, Venus and Adonis makes ample use of dramatic recitative. A clear model for Handel’s later Acis and Galatea, this world premiere recording of Pepusch’s wonderful masque reestablishes the work as a milestone in the history of English opera.

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!
