Total Playing Time    66:26
This repertoire is a reminder that there was an era in which composers were not divided into those who wrote folk music and those who created art music. After this period, composers continually tried to restore a connection between these two worlds and the Duo Escarlata does its best to support these efforts here with its instrumental combination of violoncello and accordion. Martinů's little gems sound as if they came from a Bohemian dance floor, Schumann's Pieces in Folk Style are of a childlike beauty and Dvořák's Polonaise skilfully alternates between rustic and refined; the music is sensual, witty and affectionate.

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!
