On the new album Haydn, Almeida & Beethoven, the Protean Quartet, winners of the prestigious first prize at the 2022 York Early Music International Young Artists Competition, explore the String Quartet repertoire of the second half of the XVIII Century in this new Pure DSD 256 release from Eudora Records.
From the last of the so-called “Russian Quartets”, by Franz Joseph Haydn, to Beethoven’s Op. 18 No.1, the first of his String Quartets to be published, but already a masterpiece of the repertoire. The album also includes the first recording of Juan Pedro Almeida’s Quartet op. 7 no. 1. The Protean Quartet, performing on period instruments and historically informed criteria, delivers refined, vital, and highly expressive performances.
This album was recorded in Stereo and 5 Channel Surround Sound Pure DSD 256. It is exclusively available at NativeDSD in Pure DSD Stereo and 5 Channel Surround Sound DSD 256, DSD 128 and DSD 64 plus Stereo DSD 512. All created in the DSD Domain from the original Pure DSD recordings.
