One of the challenges for any modern day viola da gamba virtuoso is the constant search for new and demanding solo repertoire with which to demonstrate technical and interpretative prowess, especially given that the supply dried up during the Baroque era. One of Fahmi Alqhai’s solutions to the challenge is the recourse to transcriptions and on this tour de force, he presents four of his own reworkings of solo instrumental masterpieces by Bach. Alqhai has created transcriptions that sound as though they could have been written for the viola da gamba, a testament to Bach’s genius.

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!
