Total Playing Time    64:03
"... there is a great deal to admire here. There’s no question that Stella has the proper Buxtehude style, which is to play with irregular meter and with the parts of both hands slightly out of synch much of the time, which creates a weird tension. He also dances and sparkles in several of the allemandes, particularly the one that begins Auf meinen lieben Gott."
- Fanfare

Italian musician Simone Stella presents a comprehensive overview of the harpsichord music of Dietrich Buxtehude, a composer seen by many as J.S. Bach’s true predecessor. This is the first volume in Stella's four-album series of Buxtehude’s complete works for harpsichord, including suites in the popular French style, several pieces that can be played effectively on both organ and harpsichord (preludes, fugues, canzonas and choral elaborations) and variations on arias, which showcase the composer’s creativity and ability to write in a variety of styles. Stella has also recorded and performed Buxtehude's complete organ music.

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!
