Violinist Anton Barakhovsky, violist Alexander Zemtsov, cellist Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt and pianist Eldar Nebolsin join forces on this recording of quartets by Brahms and Mahler. After a period as a court composer at Detmold, Brahms returned to his native Hamburg in January 1860 where, in relative tranquillity, he explored the then rare piano quartet repertoire. His Piano Quartet No. 2 received a very sympathetic hearing in Vienna, Clara Schumann even preferring it to its immediate predecessor. Mahler's quartet dates back to 1876, the end of his first year at the Vienna Conservatory, where the only completed movement was first performed.

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!
