Total Playing Time    59:23
Centred around Saint-Saëns’s Danse macabre, this album from the Hermès Quartet presents an unknown aspect of the French mélodie of the fin de siècle. Based on sometimes very intimate texts by Rimbaud, Baudelaire or Verhaeren, among others, these works externalized, over a century ago, the existential malaise of mankind. The rare contralto tone of Sarah Laulan serves the ambiguity of these mélodies that deploy by turns darkness but also humour, provocation and cynicism. Also featured on various pieces are pianist Maciej Pikulski and violinist Omer Bouchez.

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!
