"The excellence of the audio quality is a distinguishing feature of this recording. The sound is bathed in a clear, warm acoustic conferring a palpable sense of intimacy. The engineers have achieved an ideal balance between the instrumentalists, who deliver intelligent and polished performances. Indeed, they prove worthy advocates of these marvellous but sadly neglected scores. Shmuel Ashkenasi and Nobuko Imai make sympathetic soulmates to the Trio Nota Bene. Claves has certainly done these works proud." - MusicWeb International Swiss ensemble Trio Nota Bene is joined by violinist Shmuel Ashkenasi and violist Nobuko Imai on this recording of Ernő Dohnányi's very first published work, his Piano Quintet No. 1 from 1895, paired here with his second and final piano quintet, published almost 20 years later.

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!
