Digital Booklet
icarus Quartet’s debut album, BIG THINGS, is comprised of three substantial works by composers Michael Laurello, Brad Lubman, and Paul Lansky that have helped catalyze the unmistakable aesthetic of this half piano/half percussion group. The album opens with Michael Laurello’s rhythmically driving “Big Things,” an arrangement dedicated to icarus Quartet. Brad Lubman’s “Tangents” eschews any given or predictable narrative in favor of a nonsensical dreamworld that also inspired the pancake-themed album art. Paul Lansky’s eight-movement work “Textures” celebrates the multifarious sonic potential of percussion and piano together. Laurello, Lubman, and Lansky have each been elemental to the existence of the ensemble and it is with great pleasure that icarus Quartet shares their music on this energetic 60-minute tour de force.

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!
