“Warmly recorded, the Adamas Quartett give committed accounts of these alluring scores. This is music I’m delighted to have become acquainted with.”
- Stephen Greenbank, MusicWeb International

With this release, Austria's Adamas String Quartet continue their project focusing on composers whose works were termed degenerate and subsequently banned during the Nazi regime, here turning to pieces by Hans Krasa, Ernst Krenek and Alexandre Tansmann.

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!
