Known worldwide for his Symphony No. 3, ‘Symphony of Sorrowful Songs’, Polish composer Henryk Górecki enjoys an exceptionally high profile as a composer of contemporary music. Now the Molinari Quartet has chosen to explore Górecki’s chamber works with this new recording of his complete string quartets. Each quartet bears a descriptive title. The first, ‘Juz sie zmierzcha [Already dusk is falling]’, is named after the opening line of a motet by a Polish Renaissance composer. The second, ‘Quasi una fantasia’, invokes Beethoven, acknowledged by Górecki himself as his muse for his first two string quartets. The title of the third quartet, ... songs are sung, comes from a line by the Russian poet Velimir Khlebnikov.

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!
