Neeme Järvi and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande explore opera composer Jacques Offenbach’s effervescent music on this third volume in their series of 19th century French orchestral works, all recorded in Geneva’s historic Victoria Hall. From highly successful satirical operettas to more ambitious pieces, the vividly tuneful overtures reveal the captivating imagination of this prolific composer as well as the flourishing theatrical life of Paris in his day.

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!
