- MusicWeb International

The ensemble Les Jacobins devotes this album to arrangements of the overtures to six of Étienne-Nicolas Méhul’s successful operas. At the end of the 18th century, it was common practice to arrange extracts from fashionable operas for small ensembles, often wind octets, to allow them to be performed in a range of contexts, as heard here. Several revolutionary pieces are also included on the programme, such as Le Chant du départ, a war song for the Revolutionary French armies. Les Jacobins, comprised of Mathieu Lussier in collaboration with Canadian and international wind players, was founded to explore the rich but little-known repertoire associated with the French Revolution. .

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!
