The Colorado-based string ensemble Altius Quartet proudly presents its debut album Dress Code, a programme designed to appeal to a wide range of musical palates. Each work is derived from a universal source of invention and innovation, representative of the times in history from whence they came. Interspersed between the more contemporary selections are movements of two classical pieces from vastly different eras. Drawing from the period themes of Haydn and the ragtime sensibilities of William Bolcom, the quartet emulates the playfulness of the compositions in a way which makes for seamless transitions between the more mainstream songs. These popular staples include Led Zeppelin, Ben E. King and a-ha, but perhaps the most interesting and unique arrangement is Take It, an unlikely pairing of Michael Jackson’s Beat It and Dave Brubeck’s Take Five. The result is a bold endeavour which pays equal homage to both while creating an invigorating original track that effortlessly combines classical, jazz and pop.

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!
