"Five Stars ... authoritative, suave, technically dazzling and delivers immaculately manicured ornaments that lend brilliance and expressive introspection ..." - BBC Music Magazine "I’m pleased to see not only that (Devine) has turned his attention to Rameau but that this is billed as volume one of an ongoing series ... you can hardly go wrong ..." - MusicWeb International Celebrated harpsichordist Steven Devine presents the first of three volumes surveying the keyboard works of French Baroque composer Jean-Philippe Rameau. Devine performs the first two books of Rameau's Pièces de Clavecin: the 1706 Premier Livre de Pièces de Clavecin and the 1724 Pièces de Clavessin. Ranging from the more traditional dance movements of the earlier book to the sophisticated and forward-looking character pieces of the second book, Rameau's keyboard work is a milestone in the harpsichord repertoire. Released in 2014 to mark the 250th anniversary of the composer's death, Devine performs on a copy of a double manual harpsichord built by Andreas Ruckers in 1636 with ravalement by Henri Hemsch in 1763.

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!
