"Editor's Choice ... a true recognition of Bach’s genius took some time, but these works were circulating shortly after his death and are here wonderfully played on an organ of the era."
- Gramophone

"... a lively snapshot of what at least might have been heard; and, thanks to an instrument built in the year before Bach's death ... how it must have sounded too ... thoughtfully programmed, Gugliemi's Italian perspective intrigues."
- BBC Music Magazine

"This is no ordinary greatest hits disc of Bach’s organ music. The organ used here is a fascinatingly sweet-toned Baroque instrument by Michele Ramasco of 1749 ... the music is taken from two 18th century collections of Bach’s music that circulated in Italy after his death, with rarities ..."
- The Guardian

"This is Bach from a different angle than we are used to. Guglielmi documents one neglected aspect of how Bach's music made its way in the late 18th century ... Guglielmi is an intelligent player who is aware of what was common in Bach's time and region ... this Italian organ is surprisingly well suited to Bach's music. Guglielmi is a highly skilled and stylish interpreter, and this combination of instrument and interpreter results in a splendid disc which no organ aficionado should miss. I will certainly regularly return to it."
- MusicWeb International

Luca Guglielmi received glowing worldwide praise for this 2015 album, recorded on a 1749 organ In a church in a quiet northern Italian town. The renowned Italian organist presents a fine sequence of some of Bach’s greatest compositions for keyboard here, performed on a historic instrument that proves to be perfect for Bach’s music. The programme is compiled from pieces collected by two 18th century scholars, Padre Martini and Friedrich Wilhelm Rust, who played a major role in the creation of the first collected edition of Bach’s works.

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!
