"The clarity of separation between the instruments is owed in part to the recording but also the performers themselves, a well attuned group. A distinctive disc celebrating the emerging mastery of Martin Helmchen.”
- Gramophone

"There is no finer performance available, certainly none better recorded: gorgeous, perfectly natural sound ... this has got to be one of the most shapely, elegant, and effortlessly flowing versions ever committed to disc. Every phrase breathes ... the 'interpretation' simply dissolves into the pure experience of Schubert. You'll love it."
- ClassicsToday.com

Young pianist Martin Helmchen leads an impressive line up of string players including violinist Christian Tetzlaff on this 2009 collection of some of Schubert's most beloved chamber music. Critics have noted the sensitive interplay between Helmchen's piano and Tetzlaff's violin is one of the highlights of this performance.

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!
