The six keyboard partitias constituted J.S. Bach's first official publication and were not sold to the public until the composer was in his forties. These foundational works are given a vibrant performance by renowned British harpsichordist Richard Egarr on this release for harmonia mundi, adding to his extensive recording of the Baroque master's oeuvre.

“These six offerings are immense in musical scope, and in compositional and technical virtuosity.”
- Richard Egarr, harpsichordist

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!
