The Poker Club Band is an ensemble of early music specialists and a traditional singer, focusing on the repertoire from the time of the Enlightenment to the romanticism. There have been numerous recordings and performances of Haydn's Scottish songs arrangements with the standard piano trio and classical singers. However, many publications of Scottish traditional repertoire around 1800 indeed suggest to be accompanied by harp or fortepiano, often harp mentioned before piano. Our ambition is to achieve the historical crossover that was likely to be happening at the time the songs were published, through the Gaelic singer James Graham, with his distinctively 'natural' Scottish timbre and intonation that embodies the sentiment of the songs; and through the instrumentalists trained in historical performance practice and playing on period instruments. It is not only breathtakingly beautiful music and interesting experiment in historical performance practice, but also very entertaining. The harp used in the project deserves a mention: it is a single-action pedal harp built in February 1809 at Erard's workshop in London; it was by chance shipped to Wood & Co., Edinburgh (the music shop Muir, Wood & Co. on Leith Street), almost certainly used in Edinburgh salon music scene at the time.

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!
