The Chiaroscuro Quartet brings together artists from Russia, Sweden, Spain and France performing music of the Classical and early Romantic periods on gut strings and with historical bows. The London-based ensemble’s unique sound is highly acclaimed by both audiences and critics all over Europe. This programme features the first three string quartets of Haydn's landmark and groundbreaking Opus 20, considered the very blueprint for the genre.

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!
