"This is indeed very beautiful. Their starting point has been the belief that Bach’s music has both an aura of magic and an almost divine form, and the translation of that into performance has yielded warmly fluid readings, and a clear-toned sound from Zanisi ... her technique and shaping are equally lovely; elegant ornamentations, perfectly judged ebb and swell to sustained notes, and faster passagework sounding so at ease that its true complexity often washes over you."
- Gramophone

This acclaimed double album is the first solo recording from violinist Chiara Zanisi and is dedicated to J.S. Bach’s Six Sonatas for Harpsichord and Violin. Alongside her is the award-winning Giulia Nuti, considered a leading harpsichordist and scholar in Italy. The kernel from which this project grew is their strongly shared idea that, in addition to great stylistic richness and invention, Bach’s music possesses an aura of magic and an almost divine form. Thus, in a valuable and elegant reading, it is clearly their intention to underline in the simplest way the grandeur of the writing. Zanisi plays a 1761 G. Gagliano violin, while Nuti performs on a harpsichord by K. Hill.

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!
