“The Carpe Diem players perform this music with the same devoted intensity as if they were rediscovering a lost work by Tchaikovsky… the players here communicate such delight in the Russian’s quirky inspiration that the ear is led effortlessly on. Well worth investigating.”
- The Strad

“the Carpe Diem String Quartet offers impassioned interpretations… By offering sensitive, passionate performances of these works, the Carpe Diem String Quartet compels listeners to hear past Taneyev’s purported didacticism and reconsider the emotional impact of his chamber music. I recommend these recordings highly.”
- Nineteenth-Century Music Review

Well-known for their forays into contemporary and popular music, the US-based Carpe Diem String Quartet present the third volume in their series of recordings of the complete string quartets of Sergey Ivanovich Taneyev. This album offers up the almost classical String Quartet No. 7 in E Flat Major as well as the energetic String Quartet No. 5 in A Major. Carpe Diem’s dedicated efforts to bring this chamber music to a wider audience succeed in presenting both Taneyev and his work in a new light.

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!
