In the time of Madame de Pompadour, the hurdy gurdy, like the musette, enjoyed great success. It was considered on the same level as other instruments and, as can be seen in various paintings, was highly regarded by the ladies of the aristocracy. Several books of instruction for the instrument were published, one of which was Michel Corrette's La belle vielleuse; virtuoso musicians such as Danguy and Dupuits extended its techniques to their limits. The instrument's charm was sung by various poets whose words were then set as cantatas. The unknown works performed by Canadian hurdy gurdy player Tobie Miller on this recording place it firmly in the French court of the time with its stylized pastoral diversions. Miller is joined here by soprano Monika Mauch and the Ensemble Danguy.

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!
