Thanks to the hard work carried out in cooperation with recording studios as well as an increasing number of music labels (Plus Loin Music, Bee Jazz, Ambronay Editions, Zig Zag Territoires, ECM, Mirare, Aeolus, Ondine, Winter & Winter, Laborie, etc.), Qobuz now offers a rapidly-growing selection of new releases and back catalogue records in 24-bit HD quality. These albums reproduce exactly the sound from the studio recording, and offer a more comfortable listening experience that exceeds the sound quality of a CD (typically \"reduced\" for mastering at 44.1kHz/16-bit). \"Qobuz HD\" files are DRM-free and are 100% compatible with both Mac and PC. Moving away from the MP3-focused approach that has evolved over recent years at the expense of sound quality, Qobuz provides the sound calibre expected by all music lovers, allowing them to enjoy both the convenience and quality of online music.

Note 24-bit HD albums sold by Qobuz are created by our labels directly. They are not re-encoded using SACD and we guarantee their direct source. In order to continue on this path, we prohibit any tampering with the product.

Hi-Res Distinctions Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik
How can music translate the idea of a natural element such as water? One Claude Debussy already tackled the subject, but Alexandre Desplat chose a different esthetics from the one of his elder—even if, just like with Debussy, the timbers are at the heart of Desplat’s idea. For this fantastic tale from Guillermo Del Toro, which tells the love story between a young mute girl, Elisa (Sally Hawkins), and an amphibian creature (Doug Jones), Desplat incorporated no less than twelve flutes to the legendary London Symphony Orchestra—alto flutes, bass flutes, transverse flutes. The partition integrates very few brass instruments, and it is the string and wood instruments that suggest the undulation and water’s fluidity. To this is added the delicacy of instruments such as the piano, the harp and the vibraphone, which reinforce this idea. From this uncommon orchestral canvas, Alexandre Desplat joins different themes and moods. Therefore, the title sequence is a solo whistling (performed by the composer himself), which represents the young heroine’s “voice”. As for the bandoneon (which symbolizes the creature), it accentuates the oneiric aspect of the pictures thanks to its sensuality and softness. Those two instruments graciously evolve together, just like the two movie protagonists, atypical heroes who dream of being the stars of a Hollywood musical. Because beyond this incongruous script premise, The Shape of Water most of all pays homage to cinema—mostly to classic American movies. Throughout the soundtrack, you will continuously find this feeling of nostalgia, especially in the choice to highlight the South-American percussion (bongos, congas…), evoking so many movies from the 1950s and 1960s (remember Touch of Evil, directed by Orson Welles and composed by Henry Mancini). For the end credits, and just like the movie’s subject, Alexandre Desplat plays the crossover card by calling upon soprano Renée Fleming to perform a brand new arrangement of the jazz classic from the 1940s You’ll Never Know. Finally, let’s note that with The Shape of Water, Alexandre Desplat won his second Academy Award, three years after his first one for Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. ©Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz
