"... Haydn and the Doric are a perfect match ..."
- The Sunday Telegraph

"Four Stars. The Doric Quartet, making sparing use of vibrato, play with much sensitivity. Their slow movements, in particular, are beautifully done. So, too, are the three whispered fugal finales ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

Haydn’s six Op. 20 string quartets are considered milestones in the history of the genre. Each one is a unique masterpiece and the set introduces compositional techniques that radically transformed the genre and shaped it for centuries to come. For many, this is some of the greatest music Haydn ever wrote. In its first recording with a new violist, the Doric String Quartet interprets these seminal works with respect, authority and sensitivty. The quartet, one of the world’s finest young ensembles, has earned a growing reputation for its live performances of Haydn’s works.

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!
