"... this vintage ... makes an excellent choice."
- Gramophone

"(Pavarotti) is an intensely characterful Duke ... (Sutherland) is glowingly beautiful as well as supremely assured technically. Milnes makes a strong Rigoletto, vocally masterful ..."
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

Rigoletto established Verdi's reputation as one of the masters of Italian opera, and this 1971 release is considered among the best versions of Rigoletto ever recorded. A star-studded cast including Luciano Pavarotti at his peak and Joan Sutherland are accompanied by Richard Bonynge, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Ambrosian Opera Chorus.

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!
