“Unforced elegance and cleanness of detail, avoiding heavy gesture in favour of nimble energy.”
- The Observer

“The Allegri play intensely, but also gracefully; they know when to give the music space…”
- The Sunday Times

This is the first of a major series of Beethoven string quartet recordings played by the world-renowned Allegri Quartet, Britain’s longest-running chamber ensemble. The first volume contains the Opus 18 quartets, compositions that brim with the passionate enthusiasm often associated with young Beethoven.

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!
