The Big Wig by multitalented Swiss vocal marvel Andreas Schaerer is a landmark work that situates him quite clearly and definitively among his generation's most important composers and interpreters of contemporary music. This performance was recorded live at the Lucerne Festival in September 2015 and features the small ensemble Hildegard Lernt Fliegen and the Orchestra of the Lucerne Festival Academy conducted by Mariano Chiachiarini. The award-winning Schaerer is considerably more than just a singer: he uses his voice in the manner of a juggler, like a magician. Switching at will from songster to crooner to scatter, he can also produce various sounds, do beatbox percussion, imitate a whole range of instruments, or he can stack up polyphonic vocal parts on top of each other in a way which seems unfeasible.

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!
