Potency and bravura. The Heath Quartet makes its harmonia mundi début with this contrasting programme of Tchaikovsky's String Quartets: his Quartet No. 1 (famed for its plaintive Andante cantabile) and the tempestuous No. 3 (dedicated to the memory of Ferdinand Laub). "The music's potency and bravura were conveyed with thrilling conviction." (THE GUARDIAN)

Toute la puissance et la bravoure. Le Quatuor Heath consacre son premier enregistrement sous le label harmonia mundi au contraste saisissant des quatuors de Tchaïkovski: le Premier (avec le célèbre et plaintif Andante cantabile) et le fougueux Troisième (à la mémoire de Ferdinand Laub). "Toute la puissance et la bravoure de cette musique s'exprimait avec une fascinante conviction." (THE GUARDIAN)

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!
