"... the 1975 recording of the Trout is a masterly contribution from Gilels ... the Amadeus play with considerable freshness. The approach is very positive ... rewarding in its seriousness of purpose ... the quartet play as one in dealing with the finer points of phrasing ..." - The Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music This all-Schubert programme from the Amadeus Quartet combines a 1959 recording of Death and the Maiden string quartet with a 1975 recording of The Trout piano quintet. Late Russian pianist Emil Gilels joins the Amadeus players on The Trout for a version that has been called one of the finest ever recorded.

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!
