Recorded live in Tokyo's Suntory Hall, the acclaimed Kuss Quartet – all playing Stradivarius instruments on loan from the Nippon Music Foundation – these four instruments are known as the 'Paganini Quartet', and using the new Henle urtext edition. The Kuss Quartet are renowned for their penetrating and searching performances of quartet repertoire spanning Haydn through to Birtwhistle and Adés. Their Beethoven journey continues throughout this anniversary year with Beethoven performances around Europe. The recording has an interesting postscript – French composer Bruno Mantovani wrote is 6th string quartet for the Kuss Quartet. It is based entirely on material from each Beethoven quartet and is an affectionate tribute to the great man on his 250th birthday anniversary.

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!
