Commemorating the 10th anniversary of the death of composer Jacques Hétu, Pentaèdre Wind Ensemble and pianist Philip Chiu present a recording devoted to works by this renowned Canadian composer. The program reflects Hétu's great interest in wind instruments. From his Wind Quintet to the Elegy for bassoon and pieces for flute and piano, this new recording invites the listener to discover an expressive and modern musical universe.

A unique musical ensemble on the Canadian landscape, Pentaèdre explores a diversified and original chamber music repertoire. Founded in 1985, the five artists-musicians forming the quintet are recognized for the talent, technique, precision and color they bring to their performances. The ensemble has toured extensively across Canada, and also in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East. Lauded as "...a pianist-painter who turns every musical idea into a beautiful array of colors" (La Presse), Philip Chiuis acclaimed for his brilliant and sensitive playing. As a soloist and chamber musician, he appears in recitals with leading international musicians including James Ehnes, and Regis Pasquier. Chiuperforms regularly with Jonathan Crow, concertmaster of the Toronto Symphony, and Andrew Wan, co-concertmaster of lOrchestre Symphonique de Montréal.

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!
