"The Eschers sound warm, relaxed and responsive to all of Mendelssohn’s expressive nuances ..."
- The Guardian

On this third volume in a series devoted to Mendelssohn quartets, the Escher String Quartet completes the cycle with the composer's last two quartets, including his final work, the Quartet No. 6, finished mere months before his death. The New York City-based Escher ensemble, taking its name and inspiration from the Dutch artist, has received acclaim for its profound musical insight and rare tonal beauty. In 2013, the quartet became one of the very few chamber groups to be awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant.

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!
