"... a bold, personal statement, presenting new and recent solo works alongside standard repertoire ... (Toquade) fit Thibeault like the proverbial glove ..." - CBC Music Named Révélation Radio-Canada 2016 - 2017, award-winning violist Marina Thibeault travels the world as an ambassador for her instrument. On Toquade, she presents contemporary works for solo viola by Canadian composers Ana Sokolovic and Jean Lesage alongside romantic and modern pieces by Tchaikovsky, Glinka, Kymlicka, Martinů and Hindemith. Thibeault is accompanied by pianist Janelle Fung here, the duo's first recording together. "I believe the viola is now in its golden era. Great players are touring the world as soloists and today’s composers are giving the instrument a lot of attention ... it’s not rare, after a recital, that audience members tell me it’s their first time hearing the viola, other than in a chamber music or orchestral context. I’ve also had a few young violinists come up to me and say that a certain piece I played made them want to switch to viola. That’s pretty much the best compliment a violist can get!" - Marina Thibeault

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!
