While perhaps best known for his twin series of symphonies and string quartets, Polish composer Krzysztof Meyer’s mastery of the chamber medium is also revealed in the two works presented here by the Silesian String Quartet under the direction of Piotr Sałajczyk. The Piano Quartet, heard in its world premiere recording, is unusual in Meyer’s output for its one movement structure with several contrasting sections. In its scale and impact, the Piano Quintet recalls similar such pieces dating back to Brahms.

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!
