Digital Booklet
"The particular genius of Brooklyn Rider has been the way in which the group manages to connect established masterworks to new projects that capture the pop infatuation, diversity, and more informal spirit of the group’s namesake borough. A Walking Fire makes a telling argument for the validity of this approach, with an infectious toe-tapping quality that pervades both the Bartók masterwork and the lighter offerings which set it so cleverly in relief." - Dan Visconti , New Music USA "It’s more genre-bending stuff, executed with flair and technical perfection. The sound is airless and dynamically compressed, in the manner of a pop recording, but you won’t mind a bit." - Andrew Quint, The Absolute Sound Brooklyn Rider is known for exploring unusual and contemporary repertoire and for celebrating musicians outside of the classical sphere and this seventh release for the ensemble finds them diving into Eastern European music old and new, from Bartok's String Quartet No. 2 to the lesser known Three Miniatures for String Quartet by Colin Jacobsen.

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!
