Digital Booklet
“The reissue of Martha Argerich’s recordings, their reappearance in this or that format, testifies to the unique and enduring nature of her magisterial temperament and musicianship... [these] studio recordings carry an extraordinary authority and panache.” - Bryce Morrison, Gramophone Deutsche Grammophon presents a digital reissue of recordings of solo keyboard works by J.S. Bach from legendary pianist Martha Argerich on this album. First released in 1980, Argerich presents the Toccata in C Minor along with the Partita No. 2 in C Minor and the English Suite No. 2 in A Minor in interpretations which are as fresh today as they were the year they were recorded.

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!
