Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    62:15
Carl Schimmel’s debut full-length release shows the composer at his best, writing intricate, expressive music that balances wit and pathos. Both of the Roadshow pieces were composed for his children, one for his son Otto and the other for his daughter Thora. Schimmel was inspired by the hit PBS show Antiques Roadshow and each miniature movement is an imagining of how his children might play with toys he saw featured on the show. The six movements of his String Quartet No. 2 were inspired by cubist paintings that Schimmel then incorporates as characters in the piece. The final work on the recording, The Pismirist's Congeries, returns to the light character of the Roadshow pair.

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!
