On this album, the Juno Award-winning team of period gambist Mélisande Corriveau and harpsichordist Eric Milnes presents a vibrant array of French musical styles, developed during the 18th century up to the French Revolution. Most of these works exploring the pardessus de viole, known in France as "the woman's violin," are unpublished and few have ever been recorded. At the time of their composition, these charming, playful, luminous and exquisitely elegant pieces catered to a large public, responding to widespread demand for refined entertainment. The rare pardessus de viole Corriveau plays here dates back to 1710 and was built by Nicolas Bertrand, one of the great French faiseurs d’instruments of the period.

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!
