"... numerous subsequent ensembles have opened out the performing tradition in new and unexpected ways, not least the Sorrel Quartet, whose excellent traversal continues with this hitherto untried pairing of works from either end of the cycle. Cordially recommended ..." - International Record Review Between 1998 and 2005, British ensemble the Sorrel String Quartet recorded the entire cycle of Shostakovch's string quartets, receiving great critical praise with the release of each volume in the six-album series. This is the fourth installment, recorded in 2003.

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!
