Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    73:48
Devoted to chamber music and art songs by Auguste Descarries (1896–1958), this new recording reveals diverse aspects of this lesser known Canadian composer’s creative gifts. As a pianist and organist, Descarries was a highly gifted improviser and emeritus professor. The main features of his style are Classical form, Romantic expression, a solid command of the composer’s craft, authenticity of inspiration, and finely wrought harmonies.

Baritone Pierre Rancourt brings Descarries' melodies to life, many of which are recorded here for the first time. Pianist Jimmy Brière - member of the Hochelaga Trio - accompanies Rancourt at the piano and performs solo pieces, duet and chamber music with Hochelaga Trio and their guest artists Victor Fournelle-Blain on the viola and Éliane Charest-Beauchamp on the violin.

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!
