Mozart was commissioned to compose three quartets in 1785 by publisher Franz Anton Hoffmeister, however the publisher feared the work was too difficult for amateurs so he released Mozart from the obligation of finishing the set. Mozart did write one quartet and nine months later he composed a second quartet: those two works are the Piano Quartets KV 478 and KV 493 featured on this album and performed by award-winning Italian quartet Quartetto Avos.

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!
