Digital Booklet
"The world doesn’t need yet another recording of Beethoven’s string quartets, you might argue, but this terrific cycle from the Elias String Quartet demonstrates how fresh, probing and confrontational a new account can be." - Kate Molleson, The Guardian The highly accomplished Elias String Quartet continues in a series recording Beethoven's complete string quartets and this fourth instalment presents a program that surveys the composer's entire career. From the assertive and bright Op. 18, No. 2 to the fiery and emotive Op. 127, the Elias players provide fervent, personal and virtuosic interpretations of each.

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!
