Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    1:59:45
"... exceptional: searching, humane, powerfully registered ... able to project Verdi's more primitive accompaniments with the kind of robust good sense which is the mark of the born Verdian ... with Giulini in rapt attendance, Cotrubas has a head start over her rivals as Gilda ... Domingo's is one of the greatest accounts of the role ever recorded ... necessary listening for anyone interested in Verdi, Rigoletto ... or the tenor's art."
- Gramophone

Recorded in 1979, this presentation of Verdi's Rigoletto from the Wiener Philharmoniker, called "exceptional" by Gramophone, remains a benchmark performance of the opera. Baritone Piero Cappuccilli sings the title role in an impressive cast that also includes Plácido Domingo as the Duke.

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!
