Contemporary music specialists the Arditti String Quartet present a release of quartets by Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen. Associated with the “new simplicity” of the 1960s, Abrahamsen's String Quartets Nos. 1-4 are often sparse and repetitive but display an engaging playfulness and experimentation with timbre and reinvention, explored with gusto by the skilled Arditti musicians.

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!
