"Four Stars ... (Pifarély) has found a personal language that expressively adapts to orthodox jazz settings, cutting-edge improv and contemporary classical music alike ... there are collective jazzy chatterings against surging drums, piano reveries that unfold over soft mallet taps and slow laments ... everything a Pifarély band plays sounds as if it has a rich and reflective old and new music history to it." - The Guardian Dominique Pifarély’s quartet, featuring longtime double bassist Bruno Chevillon and drummer François Merville joined by newer associate Antonin Rayon on piano, provides a marvellous context for the full range of the French violinist’s expression. Pifarély thrives in the unstable territory between improvisation and composition, his pieces here establishing ideas, structural elements and themes, "provisional traces" that encourage textural, lyrical and abstract improvising. The interplay between the musicians is consistently dynamic and engaging, inspiring Pifarély to some of his finest soloing.

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!
