"... this particular performance ( of Berg's String Quartet) was spellbinding and almost worth the price of the CD all by itself."
- Fanfare

Red from young German ensemble Amaryllis Quartett features an early work by Alban Berg as well as the late String Quartet by Beethoven. The iconoclastic sounds of Berg are as electrifying as the neverending phrases and tremendous motivic sections in Beethoven's suspenseful quartet.

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!
