First prize at the prestigious ARD competition in Munich, the Arod Quartet gave itself as guardian figure a horse imagined by Tolkien in The Lord of the Rings, symbol of strength and ardor. After two remarkable recordings, the Quartet returns to us today with Schubert quartets recorded in the sublime acoustics of La Chaux de Fonds: the famous Quartet N ° 14 "La jeune fille et la mort", the Quartet N ° 4, as well as that the 1st movement of Quartet No. 12 unfinished. All of Schubert's lyricism, gloom, and despair are expressed here with rare interpretive quality and authority.

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!
