"... the most insightful and moving performance of Arcadiana I have ever heard."
- The Guardian

"Five Stars. Intricate and endlessly complex, Adès's chamber music retains all its glitter several decades on. It’s difficult to see how the performances themselves could be better. Adès himself is a wonderful pianist, able to deliver supple precision and beautiful tone while navigating every kind of technical difficulty; the Calder Quartet’s playing too is superbly accomplished and there’s lovely recorded sound to match."
- Sinfini Music

Los Angeles-based string ensemble the Calder Quartet devotes this album to British composer Thomas Adès, including the world premiere recording of The Four Quarters and his first-ever work for string quartet, Arcadiana. The programme also includes the single-movement, three-part Piano Quintet with the composer himself at the piano.

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!
