“The result is a performance as exhilarating musically as it is absorbing musicologically.”
- David Threasher, Gramophone

“Altogether it’s a splendid performance – a must for all who treasure this masterpiece.”
- BBC Music Magazine

This release sees the Eroica Quartet joined by violinists Ken Aiso and Marcus Barcham-Stevens, violist Oliver Wilson, and cellist Robin Michael for a world premiere recording of the original 1825 version of Mendelssohn's beloved String Octet. Performed using period appropriate instruments as well as techniques (namely with regard to bowings, fingerings, and vibrato), this exciting project presents Mendelssohn's famous work in a whole new light.

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!
