Total Playing Time    65:04
Zurich-based ensemble the Gringolts Quartet and cellist Christian Poltéra present two significant quintets from Alexander Glazunov and Sergei Taneyev. During the second half of the 19th century, Russian composers were focusing on creating a national sound based around folk songs. Chamber music was largely unpopular and therefore many did not write for the genre. Glazunov was a cellist who learned his instrument through the performance of chamber works and composed seven string quartets over the course of his career. His Quintet in A Major is featured on this album along with Taneyev’s impassioned String Quintet No. 1.

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!
