The Emerson String Quartet celebrates its 40th season in 2017 with this album exploring the close affinities of the music of Britten and Purcell, arguably two of Britain’s most famous composers. Exclusively featuring repertoire never before recorded by the multiple Grammy Award-winning group, the programme comprises two string quartets by Britten as well as a selection of chaconnes and fantasias from Purcell. This is the ensemble's first release to include cellist Paul Watkins, who joined in 2013.

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!
