Digital Booklet
One of the most original groups to emerge on the Canadian music scene, Forestare guitar ensemble returns with Douze guitares à Paris, a tribute to French music that is as unique as the ensemble’s boundary-pushing vision. Works by Impressionist masters Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel share the program with compositions by contemporary guitarists Roland Dyens and Arnaud Dumond. Debussy and Ravel introduced many of the compositional elements still used by guitar composers today: timbres, textures, and whole-tone scales are a perfect fit with the instrument’s poetic qualities. On this album we hear two of the best-known works from French Impressionism, Debussy’s "Suite bergamasque" and Ravel’s "Ma mère l’Oye", in arrangements for guitar ensemble. French guitarist Roland Dyens was among the most gifted composers of his generation. His work "Hamsa" for guitar orchestra is considered to be one of the cornerstones in the repertoire for this type of ensemble. Rounding out the program are two works by Arnaud Dumond: "Lumières sur le Saint-Laurent", a long, progressive fresco for solo electric guitar and classical guitar ensemble inspired by the music of Pink Floyd, and "Allegro barbaro". Scored for 10 guitars, double bass and two soloists, this virtuosic, energetic, and stylish work is the album’s grand finale.

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!
