Few music lovers are aware of the importance and originality of Brahms's three piano quartets, yet the composer completely reinvented the genre. These works contain some of his most profound inspirations, demonstrating both the orchestral power of his scoring and his interiority. They probably provided fertile ground for his 'symphonic' imagination, judging by the uncommon force and creative power with which it is expressed throughout these three scores. The members of the Quatuor Hermès and Geoffroy Couteau have completely grasped the nature of this music, and serve it with the requisite authority and tenderness in an outstandingly committed interpretation.

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!
