The Amadeus were the most successful and highly-regarded Quartet of the 20th century. One of the first to make use of the then extraordinary new ability to travel the globe by aeroplane, they travelled widely and established themselves as the pre-eminent ensemble of chamber music-making for nearly 40 years.

Reviews of their concert tours were ecstatic and audiences delighted. The Quartet (who styled themselves ‘The Wolf-Gang’) roved the world arguing, celebrating and working like no other group. In all their 40 years they never changed a single member. The group consisted of Norbert Brainin, Siegmund Nissel, Peter Schidlof and Martin Lovett, making recordings together from 1951 to 1987, ending only with the death of Peter Schidlof in 1987.

This album, accompanied by two more released this week by Deutsche Grammophon through ProStudioMasters, stand as eloquent testimony to their thoughtful musicianship, technical calibre and to the immense esteem in which the world continues to hold them.

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!
