"Four Stars ... the complex weave of the Second Suite has confounded many, especially its monumental fugue: this is where Viersen excels, limpidly at home in its intricately rhythmic, multi-voiced construction, savouring its high, pure pitches on her very beautiful Guarneri instrument ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Evidence of Quirine Viersen’s pedigree in period performance is inescapable ... the direction often flows towards the centre of her phrases, rather than the end: the implied (although not actual) presence of a Baroque bow is very firm and as a result the legacy of the Bach suites ... is uppermost in this elegant recording."
- Gramophone

One of the leading musical personalities of her generation, Dutch cellist Quirine Viersen applies her powerful, intense and virtuoso technique to Britten's three Cello Suites on this highly acclaimed recording.

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!
