"The Cuarteto Latinoamericano plays with typical incisiveness and verve. However, the ensemble smartly tempers its trademark sharp sonority in a manner consistent with the music’s elegance and warmth ... superb engineering from Sono Luminus captures every inflection with natural fidelity. A great release."
- ClassicsToday.com

Cuarteto Latinoamericano performs two chamber music works by Ruperto Chapí that masterfully channel the colour and Spanish drama of the zarzuela into the almost abstract and Central European genre of the string quartet. With this release, the Cuarteto, known worldwide as the leading proponent of Latin American music for string quartet, has recorded most of the Latin American repertoire.

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!
