"... inspires singers and orchestra to a radiant performance which brings out all the beauty and intensity in Puccini's score, sweet but not sentimental, powerfully dramatic but not vulgar. Freni is an enchanting Butterfly, constantly growing in stature ... Pavarotti is an intensely imaginative Pinkerton.”
- The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music

A 1974 recording of Puccini's classic opera Madama Butterfly, one of the most-performed operas in the world.

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!
