"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!
