Digital Booklet
Over more than a decade together, the Franco-German Rubin Quartett, named after the ruby, has gained a unique reputation among string quartets. With this release, the quartet interprets Beethoven's exceptional masterpiece the String Quartet No. 8, the second of his three Razumovsky Quartets, named for the Russian diplomat and patron Andrey Razumovsky who commissioned the cycle. This performance was recorded live in the beautiful Baroque castle in Bad Homburg vor der Höhe in the heart of Germany. There is no better place to capture the spirit of the music and feel its soul more deeply than in the historical atmosphere of the times in which it was created and heard for the first time.

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!
