This debut album from the award-winning Kenari Quartet explores the saxophone in all of its colours and sonorities, from Pierre Max Dubois’s lighthearted and jazz-inspired music and the lyrical and expressive world of Alfred Desenclos to Jean Françaix’s witty "bantering" and the excitement and energy which closes Florent Schmitt’s Quatour. Invented in Paris in 1846, the saxophone was readily embraced by French composers who championed the new instrument through numerous ensemble and solo compositions. That spirit is celebrated here by the Indiana-based group.

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!
