The Del Sol String Quartet present premiere recordings of two new works by composers Terry Riley and Stefano Scodanibbio, artists with whom the Quartet have worked closely. For Riley's Dark Queen Mantra, commissioned by the Quartet to mark the luminary composer of minimalism's 80th birthday, the string players are joined by guitarist Gyan Riley (also the composer's son), while Scodanibbio's Mas Lugares (Su Madrigali di Monteverdi) sees the quartet perform alone in a timbrally inventive exploration of a madrigal by Renaissance composer Claudio Monteverdi.
352.8 kHz / 24-bit, 192 kHz / 24-bit, 96 kHz / 24-bit PCM and 5.6448 MHz, 2.8224 MHz DSD – Sono Luminus Studio Masters

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!
