"In each work, as ever with the BCJ, the playing was poised, graceful, rarely playful – never forced, and not trying too hard for effect."
- The Guardian

"[Suzuki] remains as scholarly in his single-minded respect for musical tradition as ever. He continues to expunge the extraneous in performances that have the quality of a refreshing purification rite."
- Los Angeles Times

Bach Collegium Japan is arguably one of the best Japanese-period instrument ensembles of the later 20th century and early 21st century. On this album, this incredible and unique group pays tribute to one of Beethoven's most famous choral works, Missa Solemnis. Overall this album highlights how Eastern and Western music can coexist in a masterful and virtuosic way.

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!
