Renowned early music pioneer Sigiswald Kuijken and his Piano Quartet approach Mozart's Piano Quartets K. 478 and K. 493 on this release for Challenge Records. A significant figure in the creation of this genre, Mozart was prompted to write these quartets by a commission from the publisher Franz Anton Hoffmeister, who subsequently declared that K. 478 was too difficult for the amateur market. This performance of the quartets is truly a family affair with Kuijken joined by his daughters Sara and Veronica, along with cellist Michel Boulanger.

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!
