Four outstanding musicians recently joined forces in Berlin’s Pierre Boulez Saal to record Mozart’s Piano Quartets Nos.1 and 2. The live album features the unique talents of two of Deutsche Grammophon's exclusive artists – Daniel Barenboim and cellist Kian Soltani – as well as those of violinist Michael Barenboim and viola-player Yulia Deyneka. Together the four musicians explore this pair of masterpieces from Mozart’s chamber repertoire, focusing on the conversational aspect of the music and creating performances brimming with excitement and vibrancy.

Mozart’s unique genius is apparent throughout his two piano quartets. Notable for their colourful melodic and harmonic writing, these works radiate a sense of immediacy and spontaneity. Their conversational interplay enables the individual characters of the different instruments to be heard on equal terms, whether as playmates, partners or antagonists, although the piano’s voice does at times take the lead, echoing its role as protagonist in Mozart’s concertos for the instrument.

The four players on this new recording bring the many different facets of K478 and K493 to life with enthusiasm and virtuosity. Their ensemble playing demonstrates both the sheer joy involved in performing, and the humility required on each player’s part, giving an insight into the intense and movingly intimate way in which the quartet approach Mozart’s chamber creations.

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!
