"Five Stars ... the Berlin Philharmonic Quintet performs superbly. The first movement has just the right sense of understatement, while they bring credible depth and vocal expressiveness to the slow movement. They develop an appropriately epic feeling in the finale, with its almost Sibelian first theme ... featuring excellent recorded sound ... well worth investigating."
- BBC Music Magazine

The Berlin Philharmonic String Quintet, with its unique configuration, breathes new life into this Dvorák programme: unlike other quintets, in which a traditional string quartet is augmented by either a second viola or a second cello, the additional instrument here is a double bass. Thus all five string sections of the orchestra are represented, and the Quintet is free to go beyond the conventional limits of a pure chamber music ensemble to become a formation with symphonic dimensions.

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!
