Composer Arnold Schönberg considered it vitally important to study the techniques of other composers in order to probe more deeply into the true content of their music and he believed the best way to do this was by arranging their original compositions. This recording from conductor Marc Albrecht and the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra contains Schönberg's orchestral version of the Piano Quartet in G Minor by Johannes Brahms, brilliantly played by Albrecht and the orchestra. Furthermore, Albrecht’s style suits the composition, with its grand, impressive gestures and vivid colour to the music. "Schönberg’s contributions made it a true orchestral work: American with a Schönberg-like sound. It is a fantastic trip through an insanely good piece." - Marc Albrecht

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!
