"Brachetta complements his captivating programme with unfailingly vigorous and technically assured playing, surmounting every difficulty with apparent ease and conveying a wealth of fine details of articulation and phrasing."
- International Record Review

"By crossing national and stylistic boundaries and including works from the mid-16th to well into the 17th century, Brachetta sets himself a considerable interpretative challenge. But his playing is fluent, his characterisations lively and idiomatic and his use of two differing instruments ... helps give definition to the several works."
- Gramophone

Amsterdam-based harpsichordist Guillermo Brachetta makes his solo debut with this 2014 programme of ciacconas and chaconnes that trace the extraordinary diversity and development of this musical form. Beginning with works from such composers as Jacques Champion de Chambonnieres and Louis Couperin, Brachetta takes the listener on a journey through the substantial offerings by Jacques Duphly and Johann Sebastian Bach. Brachetta performs on two instruments; copies by G.B. Giusti (1681) and H. Ruckers (1624) with grand ravalement (1680).

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!
