Digital Booklet
Sparks is a compilation of orchestral miniatures by composers such as George Gerswhin and Marga Richter, and stands as an ideal introduction to what postmodern, contemporary orchestral music has to offer. Miniatures, in their brevity, defy the conventional assumption that orchestral music is always large scale, and these pieces also display the range of styles mid-century composers played with, such as film scores and non-classical genres.

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!
