"Four Stars ... an attractive ensemble, brilliantly captured ... Fischer’s violin and Müller-Schott’s cello can soar, with plenty of shimmering arpeggios from Gilad ... sparkling engineering ... elegantly balanced, this bravura performance is a dessert to be savored many times."
- Audiophile Audition

"Superb readings of these often underrated scores ... (the performers are) another delight to savour ... young, highly enthusiastic and greatly talented ... can be ranked alongside the finest young chamber music performers on the international stage ... excellent sonics together with superb performances. What more could one ask. This is certainly a disc to dash out and purchase."

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!
