"Five Stars ... as in their first Langgaard disc the Nightingales play this music with an understanding and love that puts competitors in the shade. And it's all beautifully recorded."
- BBC Music Magazine

This is the second volume in a complete series of Rued Langgaard's string quartets, performed by the award-winning Nightingale String Quartet in a distinctly dramatic interpretation based on the revised Rued Langgaard Edition. The album features the world premiere recording of Rosengaardsspil which, along with the other works on the programme, bears the fascinating marks of the composer's great unrequited youthful love during a summer holiday long ago in Sweden.

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!
