Digital Booklet
This is the fifth of a six-volume series of the complete string quartets of Australian native Alfred Hill. Presented by New Zealand ensemble the Dominion String Quartet, the entire album consists of world premiere recordings. A prolific symphonist and operatic composer, Hill also wrote a sequence of 17 notable string quartets that have been largely neglected until this series. By the time he composed the three string quartets on this album, his mastery of technique had fully matured; this music is balanced, subtle and full of playful wit.

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!
