“[The Chiaroscuro Quartet is] a trailblazer for the authentic performance of High Classical chamber music.”
- Gramophone

“The group’s unadorned sound is a shock to the ears of the best, most arresting kind.”
- The Observer

Following their praised release of the first three of Haydn’s ‘Sun’ string quartets, the young but extremely capable Chiaroscuro Quartet returns with this recording of the fourth, fifth, and sixth quartets. Performing on period instruments, first violinist Alina Ibragimova shines in the demanding virtuosic passages Haydn often throws into these works, and she is lightly and dextrously accompanied by second violinist Pablo Hernán Benedí, violist Emilie Hörnlund, and cellist Claire Thirion.

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!
