The Alexander String Quartet turns its attention to Mozart’s last years with this recording of the final four quartets (part of their three-volume set which includes all of his great chamber works from that period). Eric Bromberger’s liner notes are prefaced by comments from ASQ violist Paul Yarbrough, excerpted here:

“Taken as a whole, Mozart’s works for string quartet, piano quar­tet, viola quintet, and clarinet quintet are a monumental accom­plishment, as they codified the evolution of classical chamber music. He had taken Haydn’s brilliant efforts with the string quar­tet and elevated and broadened the genre, while adhering to Haydn’s formal and conversational precedent. But however much Mozart’s late chamber works conform, they are never ‘conform­ist.’ They still have the capacity to be stunningly original, and even, especially for the listeners of the time, shocking.”

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!
