"The transcriptions are skilfully done ... (the trio's) interpretation is playful, sensitive and polished. The ensemble’s use of colours and textures truly captures the romantic essence of these operas. It is not necessary to know the operas that inspired Alder: one can just enjoy the wonderful chamber music and, like the 19th century audience, be entertained by it." - The WholeNote On this album, Trio Hochelaga explores the music of Swiss composer and conductor Ernest Alder, showcasing his trio arrangements of arias from classic 19th century French operas by Meyerbeer, Thomas, Massenet, Auber and Saint-Saëns. This is the final recording by Trio Hochelaga in its original formation, as pianist Stéphane Lemelin and cellist Paul Marleyn left the group in the summer of 2012.

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!
