This unusual collection contains world premiere recordings of adventurous works for string quartet by four composers who are linked by their teaching work in Manchester, England, an active hotspot of new music. The marvelous Quatuor Danel, the quartet in residence at the University of Manchester, performs works of exceptional distinctiveness and inspiration by established composers John Casken and Philip Grange and two of the new generation, Camden Reeves and Richard Whalley.

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!
