Digital Booklet
"It is not only the variety in the sonatas which makes one enjoy these discs, it is also the performances. Thomas Georgi really impresses with his impeccable technique and great sensitivity in the realization of the very different kinds of sonatas and movements ... the soprano and the viola d'amore are treated as equals ... Emma Kirkby gives a very good performance, with beautiful and tasteful ornamentation and blends well with the viola d'amore ... this project just has it all: a rather uncommon instrument with an intriguing, beautiful and, indeed, sweet sound, music of excellent quality and great variety, outstanding performances ... impeccable recording and production." - MusicWeb International "The acoustic is generous and immediate, with just the right atmosphere ... it supports the intimate and almost cozy feeling of the string playing. That allows every note to be clearly heard ... if you like the idea of gentle, expressive High Baroque chamber music from an out-of-the-way source, yet one which has all the urbanity and beauty of Ariosti's more celebrated contemporaries, this is a CD, indeed a series, that can be warmly recommended. Unpretentious, yet full of feeling and depth, the self-contained yet thoughtful music is played with style and generosity by these three instrumentalists. And of course Emma Kirkby's forward and colourful singing with her touch of lightness and self-aware intensity caps the recital off wonderfully." - Classical.Net Thomas Georgi concludes his masterful traversal of the works for viola d‘amore by Attilio Ariosti with this third volume, released in late 2008. The 79 movements, falling into groups and forming 21 "sonatas," stem from two different sources: a collection published in London in 1724 and a manuscript copy made by Swedish composer Johan Helmich Roman during his student years in London in the late 1710s. The manuscript is being preserved by the Music Library of Sweden in Stockholm, which is why Georgi chose the title Stockholm Sonatas for his trilogy. Joining Georgi are Lucas Harris on archlute and Baroque guitar, cellist Mime Yamahiro Brinkmann and special guest, soprano Emma Kirkby for Pur al fin gentil Viola, a cantata for solo voice and viola d‘amore.

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!
